When I saw this quilt I knew I had seen the perfect quilting design. I searched high and low on the internet until I found this bottle and bottle cap pantograph; excellent for the coca cola fabrics on both sides of the quilt.
Navy blues, Denim Blues and Baby Blues come together on this snow white quilt that is super king sized! The quilting design is a dove with an olive branch and it transformed the back of the quilt from plain to fabulous! She was so excited when she picked it up, she rushed home washed the quilt and had it on her bed the same day. (see below)
This is the first cancer quilt that I have been commissioned to do as I usually make my cancer quilts as I see a need. This quilt is for a lady in Pennsylvania who is starting her cancer treatments and is gifted to her by her loving daughter in law. The minky backing is cuddly, the batting is warm, and the scrappy top has plenty of visual interest; perfect for a treatment quilt. When she told me she liked owls, I knew this cheerful owl pattern was perfect!
This quilt was EPIC! At 120 inches wide the bargello pattern was huge and I could only photograph it in halves! The backing was a cotton sateen so it had a luscious sheen that just shimmered in the light; add a shiny turquoise thread and the effect is magical. The quilting pattern is dense at 750,000 stitches but well worth it.
The customer thought the gray back ground was too “blah”. So I loaded thick orange thread and quilted daisy chains to frame the pieced blocks. It went from “blah” to “wowza” I love the quilted texture in the orange border and the subtle vine pattern quilted in the outer border. Great use of color and fabrics on this quilt!
