General’s wives was sent by Pam. she is prolific….I think. Or maybe she just send sin batches. I love all of her projects.
This is a big one that she sent for a practice quilt. I used the damask design to quilt it. It wI am reas a perfect design for this traditional quilt.
I am really pleased with the quilting on this quilt and so is Pam. 🙂 That makes me feel good. I had so many doubts about getting a computer and it seems that I can make good use of both a computer and non computerized quilting machine. I have options now..and that is very good.
Thanks again Pam! It was a pleasure working with you! This is a beautiful quilt!
Annette made this one..and it’s one of my favorites….I know-I know. I say that about so many….but it’s true. I can’t help it! Just ask Rob…He is always talking about my quilt collection. My fear is that when I die my family will be selling my quilts in a yard sale for 20$…I will haunt them for life! Just saying. She always does a nice job for me..we have been trading for several years—love-> love her work!
I love the white space in this and I have been saving it because I wanted to take advantage of that white space.
But I decided to put it on the computer and quilt the pebbles panto again….I just love that design and I knew it would look great on this quilt. The circles with the squares is just fabulous!
Isn’t this fun? I also put a chevron print on the back. Modern all the way!
Thanks Annette! I know you love seeing them all finished. I wonder if I have finally quilted all the ones you have made for me now? If not..I am pretty close…for sure!
I am in London right now if everything has gone according to plan…and I will be home in just a few short days. I will be flying in and immediately getting everything ready for Cole’s graduation.
Pat sent me this quilt. WOWZA!! Pat always does amazing work and she chooses really intricate patterns ( mostly) it’s amazing….how much she accomplishes given the difficult patterns she chooses. Hand work, paper piecing, needle turn applique, embroidery…I am telling you it’s amazing!
She wanted me to quilt the setting diamonds like the one she saw from Tamarack Shack Here. So I want to give credit where credit is due. Kathy always does an amazing job and she is super nice. So I don’t want to steal her ideas. 🙂
But it was a lot of work and I am all to happy to honor a fellow artist. I however purposely didn’t look at any of the blocks because I had free reign to quilt the blocks how I wanted and I wanted to do my own interpretation in those.
I used 2 layers of batting, monofilament thread and it’s all done freehand with rulers.
Here are several pictures of the back as well:
I fell in love with the back almost as much as the front…I love it when that happens.
Thanks Pat! I am a HUGE fan of your work! As always! It’s a pleasure working with you…I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
Circle of Geese was made by me…and Laurie. years ago Laurie made me a bunch of blocks and I put a few of them into this quilt. I purposely left tons of gray space for custom quilting. But then the opportunity to try a modern computer design came up…so I sacrificed this quilt top….oh shucks!
( I have more blocks to make another quilt…don’t worry)
I bought this quilting design and it didn’t turn out like the picture said it would….so I am not sure if I should write the company…or not. I kind of like it….but I am not sure I can use it because it leaves quilt a bit of space not quilted. If you use good batting..there is o worries….and I can always go in and freehand some work in there as well. I am leaving this because I happen to like it. But I am not real sure how some customer would feel about it…what do you all think? Here is a close up:
Love the leaves and pebbles. It’s organic and modern and just plain cool.
This would make a cool baby quilt or wall hanging. I can’t decide….but I am glad to have another project finished. When I get back from my trip and update my project report after all of these postings..my list is gonna be HUGE!! yahoo!!
I am having a difficult time not buying computer designs…I thought to myself before I left….”Charisma you are going to making quilts just to try these designs…that doesn’t make sense”
I guess that is the downfall of a creative mind. LOL
I hope you all have a wonderful day. Do something kind for someone…..it makes a world of difference.
