I wasn’t sure what to call this piece. I have quilted a few variations of this. It’s a great pattern because it showcases fabric so well…and Deb did a great job with this…the fabric choice was very modern…the setting is modern. It’s going to be a wall hanging…so I used two layers of batting.
I used my ruler to just do straight lines in the sashings…..Didn’t want to take away from anything…just wanted to frame in each “picture”
IN the center piece I did some pebbles and waves. created movement and texture.
I gave each element it’s own design to bring some texture and interest for the wall. I love the finish. Clean simple and eye catching.
Deb has been working on many fall themed projects…I can’t say I blame her…I love fall! I love everything about fall…the rich colors, the smells, the cooler crisp clean air…..cinnamon, apples, pumpkins….In fact my family is going to the Apple festival…there is apple dumpling..YUMMY! punkin donuts….music, corn maze…kettle corn. Yes…all of that working out I have been doing is just going to go down the drain in one day..I am pretty sure. But it will be worth it!
This is one of those OBW quilts…I think that is the term right? I love them..they take a fabric and completely change everything about it. Always interesting to look at. This one is a beautiful fall themed pattern. I quilted all over leaves and framed it in with a leaf border. The back shows the quilting a bit.
She also made a few table runners….Can we talk Turkey for a minute?
How cute is this guy? ADORBS!
Then the Sunflower beauty:
Everything was great Deb!
Thanks so much! Always a pleasure working with you!
Elvida is a local quilter. She brought me this beauty. Batiks are always beautiful and I combined a few different designs for the blocks.
In one of the blocks there are 4 small ferns that meet up.
In the next block there is a continuous curve flower that fills the space. I framed it in with a feather and the side setting triangles got wavy lines that follow the pattern of the strips.
The pictures don’t do this quilt justice. It’s so pretty I wish the quilting showed up a bit better…but lighting hasn’t been my friend lately. such is life.
Here’s the back:
I can’t wait for Elvida to come pick up her quit…we are going to trade some Iris bulbs. I love iris…but all of mine are one color…light purple. The last time Elvida was here they put on quite a show because they were in full bloom. She has all white ones..so it’s the time of year to plant them..so we are going to trade some..so we can have a variety. yay!
