Just finished up another quilt the other day. There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of completing something. Especially a quilt like this.
Kathy L. (not the same Kathy of The Quilt Shoppe) designed this quilt for a Thimbleberries quilt competition. We emailed back and forth about how it should be quilted. These emails also included high quality pictures of my ideas
I say that jokingly of course. How professional can a sharpie and freezer paper be? Thankfully she trusted my judgment.
This is a close up of one of the blocks. Since it was a sampler quilt, I quilted each of the blocks a little differently. I used a lot of straight lines and echo stitching on them. I wanted to give this quilt a “hand-quilted” feel.
In the border, she wanted the green and blue stars to pop out a little more.
I would show you a picture of the quilting on the back….but can you believe that I didn’t take a picture of the back. I must have been really tired that night. I am anxiously waiting to hear how the quilt does in the competition.
