Queen Mab’s Tears Quilt

The third Project QUILTING challenge of season seven was “All About that Thread”.  The possibilities with “Thread” as the theme are absolutely endless!  Queen Mab's TearI finally decided to try something that’s been in my head for a bit now.  I printed a picture I took of bleeding hearts onto a HeatNBond EZ Print Inkjet Transfer Sheet.  (watch Heat N Bond’s blog later this month for more project details!)  It looked amazing – the colors so bright and vibrant.

I pieced a couple of hearts, added a border and prepared the piece for quilting.  Using my Bernina 750 and of course – aurifil thread, I quilted the piece.  I wanted to highlight the photo – the leaves, the flowers, the background – with free motion quilting.  I had no idea how the transfer sheet would handle free motion quilting but it worked like a charm!

I quilted a bit into the border as well and I am thrilled with the final piece!

  2. The piece is beautiful. Did you iron the transfer to fabric and then quilt? I have used various transfer products but always felt like they were "plastic or rubbery" and would be afraid to stitch on them. This is spectacular. I will be watching the heat n bond pages. :)
