Matchstick quilting

I recently took a workshop with Jacquie Gering (fabulous teacher and person) and was fascinated with the quilting on her Bridges piece.  The quilting was an 1/8th of an inch apart.  With some advice from her quilter, Sheryl, I tried it and I am very happy with the results.  It's a bit tedious but it works. The piece is more pliable than I thought it would be and actually will benefit by being mounted on another backing. 


  1. I wouldn't want to have to do this on a big quilt. It looks fantastic on this piece, though.

  2. Beautiful! I'll have to give this technique a try.
