Sherry’s Broomhilda's Bakery quilt!

Sherry’s Broomhilda's Bakery quilt!

Sherry made this amazing Broomhilda Bakery quilt, pattern by Kimberbell Designs.  The amazing thing about Kimberbell’s patterns, most of them are for those who machine embroider and she has great digital files for each block.  There is even some clear vinyl on some of them...look closely...like that jar of eye balls.  

 I wanted to add lots of textures throughout, repeating them here and there, to tie the quilting together.

I used 3 colors of thread.  White, black, and purple.  I know the white and black are 30 tex A&E Perma Core thread, I don’t remember if the purple is as well...or if it’s Signature thread.  I used an 8020 cotton poly blend batting.

Some close ups on all the quilty texture, on all the different blocks.

I used 2 of my Circle2©️ rulers, to quilt this block.  The 2”/8” (both sizes) and if I remember right, the 4”.  To check out my rulers here is a blog post: https://www.quiltingit.com/blog/2018/10/10/introducing-my-circle2-longarm-circle-ruler-set or the link to them in my shop https://www.quiltingit.com/shop/circle2-longarm-ruler-set-green-acrylic

Even those some of the designs I quilted aren’t necessarily Halloweeny, they go really well with the overall design of the quilt!!  The quilty texture is a perfect combo with all the fun blocks on this quilt.

Kimberbell Designs is known for 3D elements added to their quilts or patterns.

It’s hard to see, unless you look closely...I quilted a pinstripe in the black border.  I used the 8” edge ruler from Linda at The Quilted Pineapple.  I used a couple of her other edge rulers, when I quilted different blocks inside the quilt as well.  You can never know which size you’ll use the most, so I encourage you to get her set.   

Thank you for coming by!!  I have more quilty Halloween stuff coming your way soon.  

Happy quilting!!
