Ever since I started hand quilting in the 1990s, I wanted to make a whole cloth quilt.  It was a daunting challenge since the result would depend on my hand quilting ability.

At the 2009 NC Quilt Symposium, I took a Trapunto and stippling class from John Flynn.  His Trapunto technique and tools gave me the courage to begin designing my whole cloth quilt.  I saw a mustard yellow wall hanging in a magazine and I decided to make a reversible quilt with mustard yellow on one side and green on the other. 

I used some printed quilt patterns that I ordered and designed the pattern  It took me 150 hours to hand quilt.

Made in 2010.

Won 2nd place in the Pinehurst, NC quilt show.

WoW!  I handquilt too, but I have to admit, I don't think I would ever take this on!  :-)  Great job and quilt!  Congrats on the 2nd place!

Awesome!  Your stitches are tiny and even.  I love seeing the art of hand quilting being kept alive.  The pattern on the wholecloth is intricate and pleasing.  Congratulations!
