I just love it when I get to quilt someone’s very first quilt. They have such a great sense of accomplishment! I know I was so proud of my first wall hanging. In fact, it still hangs on my wall to this day. Wavy, pouchy, bumpy goodness and all.
This is Judy’s first quilt. Let me tell you, there wasn’t a bump, lump or pouch to be found. Her precision was unbelievable for a beginner. The quilt laid perfectly flat and square. I was quite impressed!
This rail fence quilt has such a lively, fiery color palette. I did an all over pattern that added dimension and great texture to the quilt top. This is a new pantograph pattern for me and is called Cascade. It is very versatile and I just love it. On this top it almost looks like flames fluttering across the top.
I don’t normally use striped fabric, but it always impresses me on a quilt top. It adds a bit of zing, ‘ya know?
