Scrappy 1930s quilt with custom quilting by Angela Huffman - QuiltedJoy.com

You may remember the scrappy 1930’s quilt I did for Karen a while back. Well, she wanted more quilting lines added to her quilt and it is done! The quilt has been made over and there is definately more quilting on it this time! 🙂

I had to adjust the colors and lighting to allow the camera to pick up the quilting lines well. So if you are wondering why Karen’s fabrics look a little off, now you know!

I still wanted more quilting on it so I put a double line on each side of the ribbon to give it an heirloom edged ribbon look.

Finally, I decided to put in some ribbon curls to fill in some of the areas that I felt still needed to be quilted.

I think Karen is going to LOVE it. 🙂
