My customer, Wanda N. created this quilt and it is just so cute and colorful. The large-scale prints really stand out in her blocks, and she put a lot of solids in it which are an opportunity-waiting-to-happen as far as I’m concerned! So we decided it had spaces for some really fun quilting patterns and so that’s what I did. Wanda really thinks outside of the box and so it’s always fun to see what she has come up with.
So……the lesson here? Solids are in and fashionable again, so use ‘em ladies! They are really neat spaces that let your quilting shine!
Another great-grandbaby and Shirley D makes another quilt! Her family is so lucky! She is an amazing quilter…such detailed work on the applique with ribbon and lace and such.
Happy quilting! And get out and enjoy the sunshine (if you have some in your area)!
This beautiful “island themed” table runner was made by Teri H. She wanted the quilting to reflect the island feel of the fabrics, so I used a floral motif I found in the fabric. The swirls were also inspired by the fabric. Blue thread accentuated the attractive blue and brown color scheme without being too intrusive. I understand that the table runner is going to be an anniversary gift – what lucky recipients!
