Dianne’s Masterful One Block Wonder

Dianne Edgar Lowe’s One Block Wonder was a fun quilt to freemotion longarm!

My client, Dianne Edgar Lowe, hails from the state of Washington and found me on a One Block Wonder forum on Facebook.  After getting her quilt back from a longarmer, Dianne made the difficult decision to arduously unpick everything and spent 160 hours doing so.  Here it is as it landed at my “factory”:IMG_E5568After sketching out my ideas and getting Dianne’s approval, I loaded it and went to work.  Here is the final result:1This was quilted on a double batting of Quilters Dream Blend and Wool with Glide 40 weight thread in over 25 different colors, so that the thread would blend more into the myriad of fabric colors.  Here are more detail shots of this quilt as we move in a little closer:3
