There is a quilt show called HMQS, Home Machine Quilting Show, that has blow your socks off quilts. They highlight the quilting of the 3 layers, you know the QUILTING... not the Quilting.. LOL! Don't you love we use the SAME WORD for several parts?
ok.. here is the real deal.. the quilting DOES take your top to another level when you approach it as designing the 'next level' on your piece.
Karlee Porter, won third place in the Utah’s Own quilt category for her 'Shimmering Symphony quilt'. She quilted this on an HQ sit-down machine... which means you can quilt like this on your machine! It's all about the artistry, not necessarily the machine
I really want to go to this show http://www.hmqs.org/ and examine the quilts. See how each quilter takes the piece to the next level.
