Kiwi Zinger Quilted!!!!!!

I had a little problem yesterday while quilting my Kiwi Zinger.  Not sure what happened but I had knots all over the back of the quilt and absolutely terrible tension.  So I spent the rest of the evening taking all the quilting out.

Today, I remounted it on the machine and quilted it again.  I really like how it turned out this time.

The first photo is the one that will go with my entry into the ECQG Quilt Show.  The entry deadline is June 30.  I still need to add the binding but it is done enough for entry.  Hopefully it will be juried into the show.

Next are a few close up photos.

For the entry form I need one full photo and one close up.  I need to decide which close up I want to send in.

I stippled in the selvages and feathered the zingers.  I used an off white thread in the selvages and a lime/yellow/orange King Tut thread for the feathers.

Hugs,

Melinda

  6. LOVELY work! I came over to peek via Karen's blog. I'm putting a blue zinger in our local quilt show next month. I quilted it myself but I'm sure I should have paid someone to do it! lol. Either way, I'm excited to put it in front of the public. People always look at me like I'm a trash collector when I say I want selvages, but then they see the quilt and OH!!! they *get it*. :-)
    Yours is wonderful and people will love seeing it.
