Fall sure is in the air around here. I need to get busy decorating. I had Scott pull out all the boxes of fall decorations, but I have yet to decorate with them. I usually keep Halloween out until after Thanksgiving because then I take all the fall decor down at one time and start decorating for Christmas. Scott always gives me a hard time about that. He made the comment to me last year that “nothing says Thanksgiving like a big hairy spider.” LOL! I just reply with “I’m sure there were spiders at the first Thanksgiving.” 🙂
So I recently finished a client quilt. This quilt scared the wits out of me. Why??? I seriously didn’t know where to begin on how to quilt it.
This quilt is huge. My client made it as a wedding gift for her son. Her son was married at a castle. He requested a quilt with that theme including a family crest/shield. It is a very cool idea. The colors are so striking. My client really did a beautiful job creating a quilt with those requests. The hard part for me was…how do I quilt it??? The center with the shield is a large area. I stared at this quilt on and off for a l-o-n-g time. It finally came to me. Thank goodness.
I’ll give you a little peek at what I came up with.
Medieval pebbling. Can’t wait to show you the rest. 🙂
