Imperial Blooms by Sue Spargo

 
Gosh, I think I finished the top back in 2012 and I finally started to quilt it yesterday.  I pondered whether to hand quilt it or machine quilt it and finally decided to have a go at machine quilting it.  I've never quilted a wool quilt by machine.
 
 
A close-up of some of the blocks before starting to quilt it, lots of embellishments. 

 
A close-up of the quilting.  I used a specialty thread,  Valdani Unique Twist that blended into the background wool.
 
 
This is the fabric that I'm using for the backing and the binding.

  5. What a fun quilt! The quilting looks great, what do you think of machine quilting a wool quilt? Is it difficult, or the same as with a cotton quilt?

  9. What a great quilt! I thought the wool was harder to machine quilt because it is a bit stretchy. Looks like you are doing a terrific job.
