I had the privilege of quilting this beauty a couple of weeks ago.
Karen was kind enough to take a chance on a new quilter and sent me her AMAZING quilt.
It is beautiful, isn't it?!
She gave me some initial ideas for the quilting, and then let me go from there.
I thought some wavy lines would create some movement, and some pebbling would be fun to offset the colored rays a little bit.
This quilt was so much fun to quilt! Karen's piecing is perfect! Every intersection is perfect. I also love the fabric she used. I need to ask her what they are! The dots on the fabric are shimmery--so cool.
The back of her quilt is amazing as well! I love all of the colorful pieces.
The quilting looks really amazing on the back!
You can see the shimmer of the fabrics in the picture above. Love it!
She also pieced in a half-circle too, a little farther down the quilt.
I quilted it all freehand, except for the quilting in the ditch, which I used a ruler for.
It rained almost non-stop for two weeks here, so we took most of these pictures up on our covered front porch. I have to give credit to my daughter Megan that held the quilt up. I don't understand why she thinks that taking a million pictures of a quilt that she has to hold up is crazy!
