Zebra-Inspired Quilting on Baby Quilt

This very sweet baby quilt made by Kim K. is a treasure. The twirling windmill pattern pops off the white background, and the mixed fabric border is a great way to mix it up. The flannel backing fabric was a wild black and blue zebra pattern, so that inspired Kim to ask for a zebra pattern overall quilting.

So I parked my Land Rover (oops, don’t own one),┬áput away my rifle (just kidding, don’t own that either) and stored my supplies neatly in my tent (not really). As soon as the sun came up the next day, after fortifying myself with a hearty breakfast, I got into my khakis and hoofed it over to my longarm machine where my inner-zebra came out in thread! Ha!

Happy quilting!

Slice ‘n Dice Quilt

This beautiful batik quilt by Marilyn G is a stunner! She used the pattern called “Slice ‘n Dice” by Busy Bee Quilt Designs (hey…that should have been my company name!) Lots of color and warmth is created by using the batik fabrics. To bring out the quilting I used a Jade colored thread and did a swirly curly design in an overall pattern. Fun! Wants to make you get out your batiks, doesn’t it?

This year one of my goals is to bring you the names of the patterns my customers use when making their quilts, so that way if you see something you like, you can make it too! I call it spreading the love in the quilting world!

Happy quilting!
