Riding the storm out, perfect post title and the name of the quilt I am about to share. I have been quilting up a storm the past 3 months...through all the storms...hopefully...finally sunshine is around the corner :-) Riding the Storm Out is a gorgeous new design from Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings. The kit and pattern are available if you click the link here. Lisa blogged about the quilt and all the new goodies they have here.
Using the inner square as a guide, I quilted a wreath around it. Makes the blocks appear a bit larger than they actually are. The red sashing has more detail quilting, so the blocks stand out and create "a lace edge" around each block. The outer border is on the narrow side. I wanted to create a design that framed the quilt and didn't get "lost." I love how this turned out!
All quilting is freehand. Threads are So Fine from Superior Threads. Batting is Dream Blend from Quilter's Dream Batting.
The back. :-)
The red thread looks cool!
Fingers crossed spring is around the corner!!
