Heirloom quilting involves the same detailed work in outlining piecing, borders and applique but just goes that little bit further. Original motifs and designs will be used. Typically, a higher loft batting is used so important quilting details will show. This is the type of quilting that will usually be seen on whole-cloth quilts or even baby quilts wanting to be used more for photo's and passed down through generations. Because of time involved and cost, this is rarely done for customers. Usually, a little piece of myself goes into this work.
