Friendship Sampler Quilt

I loved working on this sweet quilt.    All or most of the blocks were made for the client by her friends and then she transformed them into a spectacular quilt with fabulous borders.
















Loose scalloped finished border with little buttons already attached.  I had to work a plan to get close to those but not catch my foot or the loose edges.   Happily, the fabric lended itself to a "l" and "e" design that worked perfectly.
The back was all pieced in rows using coordinating fabrics to the front.  I rather like the abstract look of the quilting designs randomly placed on the back.



A few of the threads I auditioned.    I used the light shades of so fine for this quilt.   If I had the same softer shades in Glide I would have tried that, but I only had the pale yellow and pale green, no pale blue.  I did rather like the darker threads and this client has chosen high contrast threads in the past but in the end she said she wanted to the blocks to be the stars so I knew the t…

This lovely client quilt was made by Darcey using Jason Yenter fabrics and his pattern "Painted Summer".  I love this quilt!   We choose a light custom for this.  Busy fabrics can be difficult to showcase quilting.  I found that more space in my designs allowed it to pop on these fabrics. The more dense I got, the designs got lost.  I'm away working from my phone.   Lots of photos!   oh!  Another special moment.  Darcey lives in Alaska and saw my work online.  Thank you for trusting me with your special quilt.  Lots of photos. <

Amish With A Twist II

Such a pretty quilt.   Can you believe this is the FIRST quilt Paula ever made?  This quilt is on my bucket list too.  I had admired one hanging in a local quilt shop.   This is a big 105" quilt. She  decided to have the borders and center star area custom quilted and then chose a feathery swirl allover design for the interior of the quilt.   Great job Paula!  I can't wait to see what she does for her second quilt.
