Florence and I have exchanged many quilts between the two of us.
However, this last week our very first collaboration placed first in category and also Grand champion in her local fair (Oregon) That quilt is here.
She is a fabulous piecer.
These quilts are no exception.
This firstone I recognized as a pattern in Heather Bailey’s book…I can’t remember the name…but it focus on using big prints of fabric. I was thinking of this pattern for my Parisville line of fabric..that’s why I remember. Anyway I just really felt it needed custom quilting and I had fun adding texture to each area. Feathers, Charisma curls, B&F lines…..beautiful!
Then the next one I quilted all over Charisma Curls because the focus print was really lavish with designs that went along the same lines.
This last one is one of my favorite scrappy patterns. Honestly…they are simple blocks and have such a variety and i love the pattern it creates. I quilted continuous curves in all the squares and stippled in the white.
