Aviatrix Medallion ~ Part Four: The (Not) Finale

Aviatrix Medallion is hands down the hardest quilt top I've ever pieced, and now it's also the hardest quilt I've ever quilted.

I really enjoyed quilting all the different designs, some of which are my own ideas and some that I got from inspiration photos on the internet. A combination of ruler work and free-motion means that I never take the ruler base off. The ruler base does adds a little bit of drag, but I find I'm used to it now and can still move the machine smoothly.

And ... that's all I have for now. For personal reasons, I have to take it off the frame and I'm not sure when I'll get around to finishing it. It is my first official quilting UFO (UnFinished Object). But when I come back to it, I won't have to spend any time thinking about quilting designs, at least!

    1. This is phenomenal! Great job, Liz! Love all your quilting ideas!!!

    2. Well done, Liz! Love all the different quilting motifs!

    3. Such a great quilt and great quilting. You really are making good use of your longarm and learning a lot!

    4. I can see you were indeed having fun with those quilting designs!

    5. This is fabulous! Although you describe the project as challenging you, you definitely rose to that challenge because the piecing and quilting are both very well done. What kind of longarm do you have, and how long have you been quilting with it?

    6. Hi Liz, you are doing a great job. Congrats!
