Peppermint Twist – how was it quilted?

Mea Culpa!

The Peppermint Twist quilt project in the ‘Remembrances’ book somehow was overlooked with the machine quilting info.  The rest of the projects in the book have ideas and tips.  How did I miss doing it for PT?

Here is Tigger checking out the sweet bird Pincushion by Debbie Hartwell from Maryland, I have two or three of her pincushions, so pretty and excellent workmanship.  This was during photography for the book and obviously an out-take.

Not sure you can see it very well, but there is a sweet small square feather wreath in the alternate blocks.  The Churn Dash blocks are stitched in-the-ditch as are the outer pointy border and inner pointy framing border.  The center block background is machine quilted in a small stipple and lines were added to the leaves so they wouldn’t pouf up (look like veins).  There are also some quilting details on the flowers for the same reason.

  1. Hi Jo, Thanks for the update to this quilt… It is on my design wall right now… I will make notes to the actual book. I guess that I was just putzing around long enough to make this discovery… 🙂 Chris Lapham

  2. So glad to get the quilting info. I have all the fabric to make it, but just haven’t started it, so it’s good to know how to quilt it.
