Kite Questions

A few people had questions about the kite quilt.  Thanks so much for asking in your comments.  The kites will have embroidered tails with three-dimensional bows.  The quilt will finish at approximately 16”x 20”.


Here’s the back.  The unquilted sections are behind the kites.  I marked the design on the front before I started quilting and tried to quilt on the lines.  It resulted in more jagged quilting lines than if I had just went at it.  I’ll never do that again.  From now on my free motion is freestyle.

I also used another piece of the not quite 100% cotton on the back.  It doesn’t show as well in the picture, but in person you can see that the cross threads did not take the dye.  I know I have at least one more piece like this, maybe two.  They make great backs for small quilts.
