Every now and again, I am honored to work on a vintage quilt project. Funky Velvet is a very special one. There is so much to say about this quilt, its original construction, and how we made her come back to life.
Funky Velvet Challenges
There were also over 39 areas where there were holds and open seams throughout the quilt. Each had to be hand-sewn before moving on.
As you can see from the image above, I was able to quilt this into a pleasing interlocking freeform pattern. It was also decided to bind the quilt in the backing fabric
I want to mention a few other things. This quilt was HUGE! It started at 117 x 112 inches. The customer did not like the rounded corners so we cut it down to 101 x 110. This was still big and the velvets made it very heavy.
