And a "frame" around each of the little blocks. Notice all of the different stitching designs around each button. I don't think that she repeated any. Wow.
Another graduation quilt, this one for a friend/relative of Kathy's. Pretty batiks throughout, and I love the thread color. Perfectly matches with the colors in the quilt top, and really pops on the black background Nice job Kathy!
|How fun is this? Linda used to work for Columbia Sportswear, so many of these fabrics are from there.|
Linda's nephew is into computers, so she chose the "Jacob's Other Ladder" panto since we both think it looks like computer code. Congratulations to this new grad as well
|This is another quilt from the facebook group "Mystery Quilts Anonymous". I chose the pink and brown color scheme because I had a cone of thread in those colors that I wanted to use to quilt it.|
All fabrics pulled from my stash, and I was short using the same background fabric throughout by about 6" total. Oh well. That adds to the fun.
A huge thanks to the facebook group that supports these quilts, and to my friend Cathy for introducing me to them. By the way, I currently have 3 quilts from this group in varying stages. 2 are donations, and one is for my bed because after 15 years or so, there's a hole in mine.
|The star blocks got continuous curves on one half, and the white half was treated to the same feathers in the rest of the white sections of the quilt. Fun times for me in terms of quilting.|
I tried to find a pantograph of just polar bears, but none seem to exist. We opted for the "Log Cabin" panto that at least has a bear in it.
Poor Stacey, she called me in the midst of my "really bad day", and I don't think I must have been too grumpy, because she still talked to me when I called her back.
She designed this quilt herself based on a rug owned by the person who will receive the quilt. As usual, I don't realize just how cool the quilt top is when I'm quilting it, and then when I hand it up to take a photo, it's a moment of "Wow!" Quilted with the "Modern Squares" panto, and I think it's perfect on this quilt.
|Leigh further tells me "I always love what you do with my quilts", so there's never any "rule" as to what to do. I stared at the ric rack on the border for a time, and finally decided that it simply need to be echoed in stitching between. What fun!|
|There is a feather that grows up a spine formed by the seam between each block, but hidden in the background so as to not compete with Leigh's amazing work. Then a tiny background fill to let the flowers poof up.|
|Here's another of Sharyle's Heart to Hand mystery quilt. I believe this one was Diamond Mines, but I think she chose her won fabric for the pattern.|
Love the thread, slight variegation with yellow and a little green And of course, it had to have "African Pull Toys" for the quilting design.
