Here is a delightful quilt made by another new quilter!  She told me this first quilt is for her and she couldn’t wait to see it finished.  I used a cat and mouse pattern that shows up well on the back of the quilt.  She was thrilled!

This incredible quilt was pieced by someone new to the craft.  Fantastic piecing job!  I love the batik blocks and the creamy sashing.   We had a delightful time picking thread and designs.  Look closely and you will see ginko biloba and dragonflies.  The best part of this project for me was that I reconnected with a co worker from my nursing days in the Burn Unit.

This is a terrific scrappy pattern!  Both the background fabrics and the star fabrics are all scraps although I am suspicious that this piecer is to the point of buying fat quarters to cut into scraps for all her Pineapple Blossom quilts.  This has a wonderful combination of paisleys, bubbles and curls in the quilting which is both free motion and computerized.

I love the juxtaposition of lines and arcs on this animal print quilt.  I took my inspiration for the arcs from the print of the upper border fabric and created a digital pattern for the lime green sashing.  My customer couldn’t wait to get it home and put it on her bed.
