One of my latest finishes is a birthday present for a client’s son. It’s a beautiful tribute to his days as a boy scout and his time in the military. This quilt probably gave me the most trouble on trying to figure out what the quilting should be. There were a few things that became mental hurdles…#1 it’s for a man. I probably shouldn’t quilt a bunch of pretty feathers on it. You know I wanted to though! Lol! #2 all the borders, including a very large top and bottom border. Well, this is what I came up with.
I am very happy with it!!
I incorporated a star with a swag design. I love how that came out.
On the center panel, I did a large meandering stipple, but then did some quilting around the motif to make it “pop” more.
The back. The backing fabric was perfect for the theme of the quilt.
Ellen, my client was thrilled with the quilting!! I am currently sewing on the binding for her and will return the quilt in time for her son’s birthday!
Hope everyone has a nice weekend!
