I love the ghost blocks in the top and bottom border, no wait I love the chevron pattern that frames the entire quilt, no wait, maybe its the scrappy, color coordinated blocks. This quilt has so many incredible features to look at. Check out how the quilting provides so much texture to the backing. Just spectacular!
Bright and beautiful floral fabric are cut in such a way that they form a kaleidoscope. Same fabric and every hexi is different. I also quilted a different circular pattern in every hexigon which made for interesting textures. The geometric hexis were left simple so they would stand out and the orange thread was carried through to the striped border. Fun way to use a lot of my patterns.
This fantastic quilt is a wedding present. Originally the gray was supposed to just have background fill, however, I found the cutest quilting pattern of two llamas kissing with a heart over head and I just had to add it to the top and bottom of the gray fabric. The borders have a Peruvian style which looks phenomenal on both the front and back of the quilt. Mother of the Bride was thrilled, I can’t wait to find out what the bride and groom think of it!
Ideal Stitches is at the Fair! While I only entered one of my own quilts, four other customer quilts that I machine quilted are at the fair this year and three quilts took ribbons. I had a fantastic time Friday looking at all the quilts, enjoying the ribbons, and eating through out the day. (isn’t the eating what the state fair is all about?)
