Star Quilt with some SPUNK!

This quilt by Arlene A. is a show stopper! She is going to putting it in theĀ Emerald Valley Quilters show in early October, so if you live in the Eugene area, you might want to stop by and see her beautiful quilt up close and personal. Their quilt show runs from October 4-5, 2014.

It was fun to figure out a design that enhanced her piecing and really made the star stand out. I used a variegated thread on some of the interior borders which blended ever so nicely with the fabric. The start points called out for a simple and fun texture. The middle of the star just had to have bubbles….and of course there are more bubbles in the interior border.

Happy quilting!

Longarm Quilting Design for Bonny

Sometimes a quilt calls out for something a little special. This round-robin quilt made by Bonny E. and the Pine Needlers is just such a quilt. My longarm machine was quite happily running to and fro on this beauty, adding detail and interest wherever possible. Bonny is an amazing lady. She has taken everything that life has thrown at her with grace, intelligence and humor.

This one’s for you Bonny!
