Just in time for Christmas! This nativity panel was quilted with a swirl and star motif. Look at the star above the angel! I couldn’t have planned the placement any better.

Ideal Stitches ventured out of its quilting comfort box to embroider the lettering on the top and bottom border. The quilting was designed to showcase the photos and the quilt became a fantastic gift for a beloved daughter.
Navy Quilt Binding
Sometimes quilts come to Ideal Stitches just to get their binding. This quilt had set unfinished for ages until the navy binding completed the quilt! Now it can be used instead of stored!

Big, bold navy with a bright, vibrant lime makes a stunning color combination. Add a pop of white and a spikey curl quilting motif and the quilt is spectacular.

Bright gold thread and an almost tribal quilting pattern are a terrific contrast to the patchwork top and a stunning display on the black backing. The quilting pattern and fabric prints make a great combination.

Warm gray flannel with a cheery red center are a great combination for this log cabin quilt. Add a frosty polar bear backing and you have a warm winter quilt. The swirls are the perfect accent on both front and back!

Country blocks, strip piecing, and a meander make this an incredible quilt for a beloved brother. What is even more heart warming is that the color palate is the opposite of what this piecer gravitates to and enjoys. Truly a labor of love.
