This was a difficult quilt to send back…..WOWZA!! It’s beautiful!!
Joni is a great piecer and she does a variety of projects from wool, paper piece, modern …pretty much everything. So many of her projects are quilts I would also make….I love that because I can’t possibly make everything on my list( acceptance …I am starting to accept this..LOL) …..But I am going to make this one. As soon as I finish my 3 other wool projects I am starting this one and another Primitive Gatherings pattern.I wish I could have gotten better pictures. It’s so gray & yucky out here that I tried in 3 different locations to get decent pictures. That didn’t happen. We haven’t really seen the sun in a few weeks. These 2 outside pictures show the true colors very well. The inside pictures don’t show the true colors..but they show the thread I laid down in the quilting.
But I did get a few shots so you can see how I quilted it. I love the mix of linear designs mixed with curvy fun quilting. So i opted ( with Joni’s consent) to cross hatch the chains between the blocks…and then used pebbles and fun designs to fill in around the wool applique.. The outside edge behind the vines I quilted straight lines in pairs to create a good texture. It really offsets the inside of the vines and shows off the curve of the vines.
I wanted each block to have it’s own personality….
