Ladder to the Stars

Wilma sent this quilt…I think it is a kit from Connecting threads. It’s really pretty. Love the colors.IMG_5784

I wonder if this is one of the two block quilts? IMG_5784

As a quilter I love the open white space so I can quilt a motif and make that area shine! Swirls and feathers. Lots of continuous curves and loopies to frame it all in. IMG_5788 IMG_5787 IMG_5786 IMG_5785

Wilma is a fantastic piecer and I love working on her projects! This went so smoothly and I liked that.IMG_5790

 

She also sent this little table runner…I quilted fans in the side setting triangles to make them stand out. Beautiful! Wilma Loves 30’s and this is exactly why…so cute, charming and comfortable. Love them.IMG_5782

Thanks Wilma It’s always a pleasure working with you! IMG_5781IMG_5783

  1. I *love* that quilt, and I love what you’ve done with it!!! Those white areas are fantastic, and you set them off so very well. Argh….I made myself a little wallhanging (ok, it’s supposed to be a table runner, but I have a wall that begs for a wallhanging that size)…so, anyway, I took my inspiration from you, and I wanted to do graceful little loopies all down the side sashings. FOUR TIMES I took out stitching, FOUR TIMES. I never got more than a few inches done before deciding it looked like crap. My hat’s off to you, woman, you make it look sooooo easy. I was going to send it to you to do, but I was determined that I could do something with it, so I eventually just did straight-line stitching, every half inch, and I echoed the squares in squares to make it more interesting. It’s passable, but it’s not anything grand like what you do. I’m sooo jealous!! 🙂
