Ruth sent this quilt to me…she lives on the west side of my state. 🙂
As soon as I saw this art work on the fabrics It reminded me of my childhood. I grew up in Alaska and I am sure this has to be the same Author/artist that was from AK. I read the books and I am sure they visited our school. I can’t remember the name…but I definitely remember the art work and images. Beautiful work. Of course it’s not everyday art that depicts Eskimos and snow ect. So that was the culture I grew up with.
Ruth did a great job making the quilt. It’s a great pattern providing lots of fun …movement ect. I added lots of textures. Snowflakes, swirls, loops ect. It was fun.
It’s nice to have a little wonder and fun isn’t it?
Marcia sent these quilts. She always does a great job! Isn’t Mr. Winter just awesome? All squares and HSt’s complete him. Other than a few small appliques after he is complet. So cute and this is a good size twin quilt. Just precious!
I quilted an all over stipple with a shiny white thread to make him glisten.
This next one is cat faces….she wanted me to quilt it and then she is going to add all of the cat faces after it returns home. Isn’t that awesome? I wish I could see it when it was complete. I know I will love it!
I quilted all over swirls. That way nothing would compete with the added embellishments.keeping with the mod theme as well.
Thanks Marcia! Always a pleasure working with you! I hope you heal quickly and have a lovely holiday!
Felicia sent this beauty and I fell in love. I love the color palette…..it just speaks to me. And she wanted show type quilting. 🙂 She started this several years ago and finally finished it. I think it’s one of those projects that you start and then it just takes a back seat because it isn’t speaking to you …..and then you pick it up again..change a few things and then fall back in love.
I really wish I could have gotten better pics.
She said I could have free reign to quilt how I wanted….and I really wanted to take advantage of all of those angles. It took several days to complete…I loved working with the side setting triangles and figure out how to make them shine.
There is a good variety of sampler blocks which I really love because then there is interest all across the quilt to catch your eye and of course I quilted them all differently.
I used a double layer of batting to keep it full and also help show the quilting.
Here’s a close of up those beautiful borders and angles. I did this all freehand with rulers…made up by my own imagination. 🙂
I used pretty much every kind of quilting design I could come up with from stipple, angles, lines, continuous curves, pebbling ect.
Here is the center:
I wanted the center to stand out more than the rest..so I made it a bit different than the rest of the quilt. 🙂
Here are some more of the blocks:
I always feel good when I work with Felicia…she is a great quilter and so sweet! She just trusts me and I appreciate that. Thank YOU Felicia!
Here’s the back. It’s pieced and lovely. and you can see all of my handiwork….you nkow how I love that! I hope this shows well!
Thanks Felicia! I hope you have a wonderful Holiday!
