A Beautiful Quilt


There have been times before I quilt a top that I need to use a sticky lint roller to remove loose threads.  I've also found it useful for any threads left after I have to "unsew" any areas.  The threads on the roller are not from this quilt but one that had a lot of homespuns.  Oooo those homespuns are especially good "shedders."

 This one is a must share quilt!!  Mary (no blog) and mom to Charlotte the kitty (if you remember that story!) sent me this gorgeous top to quilt. 
 It is a pattern from Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. called, "Elizabeth."
I just love the coral pinks she used and I wish I would have thought to get a better photo of some of the backgrounds that have a variety of text in them.  Mary wanted the quilt to have a romantic swirly sort of feel.  I sent her an email with a photo of a quilt I had quilted in the past with a Feathered Roses design and she said, "That's it!"  I must admit that the quilting fits this quilt perfectly!

Those Feathered Roses are really gorgeous and perfect on that beautiful quilt.

I can't believe that you would ever make a mistake that would require that roller ;-) That is a great idea though.

Funny - when I first looked at the picture, I thought - Oh...I love that quilt. Well, yes...I hope I love it - it is the same pattern that I used (modified to make it king size) for the quilt that is ON MY BED! Lol! Your quilting is so nice!
