First off, let me just say that I truly have the best clients. The kindness, love and charity that they show on a regular basis simply astounds me. Sometimes, a quilt comes in that is being donated to charity and the quilt maker wants something nice done. Sometimes, it’s a gift to their Mother and sometimes, it’s a wedding gift. I understand this. My second and third quilts went to my family members. I am only piecing my fourth currently. But, this quilt that this blog is about is simply a stunner. The fabrics and hues and pattern were just all perfect. The piecing was spot on and great care went into it. It truly showed. The border was an added touch and this quilt top sparkled with it.
My client brought in the magazine from which she got the pattern and wished for her quilt to be quilted the same way. We only made two changes… We added intermittent feathers in the white blocks to help dress them up a tad and since she put a border on it, we ran feathers up the border.
Here it is:
A more detailed look at it:
My client brought Warm and Natural cotton batting for this quilt, which will give it an aged/antique look once it is washed. I used glide thread throughout this quilt.
I placed a freemotion feather along the edge, marking in chalk the spine for it and placing a corner element to it to help dress it up.
This was such a gorgeous quilt and the pictures just don’t do the vibrancy of it justice. I am sure the receiver of this beautiful quilt is just going to be stunned by it. Such care of work went into it and I was honored to longarm it for this very special occasion. May this union be truly blessed.
Have a fantastic day and I hope you get a little time with which to be creative!
