Terrific use of flannels to include a panel, pieced rows and a pieced border. The quilting gives it texture but doesn’t overshadow the quilt. Perfect for those chilly autumn evenings.
Great masculine quilt featuring a traditional pattern in a new layout with fantastic contemporary fabrics! The quilt pattern imitates the marbling in the outer border and makes this graduation gift is perfect for a young guy headed to college. We know that the piecer used up all the remaining fabrics to make the backing but to anyone else it looks like a whole new modern quilt top!
I wish the camera captured the shimmer of the blue/lavender pearlescent thread. It was just the right touch for this fairy quilt. When the light hits it, it looks like fairy dust sprinkled across the quilt. With 4 shelving units filled with thread, I know I have the right thread for any project that comes to Ideal Stitches.
Sometimes the right fabric just begs to be part of the quilt. This quilt originally had a black binding that was supposed to be put on but I had an extra yard that was sitting out that was a perfect match for this quilt. I called my customer and requested that she let me substitute my fabric for the black at no extra charge. Between the binding fabric and the flock of birds quilted across the quilt, the results are spectacular.
This quilt was made from the scraps of a larger quilt that was made as a wedding present. This one will go to the same family for their newest addition. The quilt pattern is the same so now they are a beautiful set. The customer was so excited to surprise the new mom and I was thrilled to be included in the process.
