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. 🙂
The Quiling is Perfect and the style of the quilt for a castle wedding is Great. Don't you Love those AhHA moments. For me I wished they came more often!!!!
First, what a fabulous quilt. Very lucky son to have such a talented Mom. Second, what a perfect quilting design. Together…a very stunning quilt.
I like the pebbling a lot and think it's perfect for this type of quilt. Very cool quilt too. How nice to be married in a castle!
I decorated with my autumn decorations last week! This week is pie baking using the apples from our trees; and maybe some apple butter too! Woohoo!
Great quilt – and pebbling is the perfect addition.♥
Looks great Linda! I've always wanted to try pebbles.
Wonderful job! You have such a gift to see the personality of the quilt! And of course, as always, your work is spectacular!
Looks great – can't wait to see more!!!
What great quilting! It fits the top perfectly 🙂 Thanks for sharing it. I keep my Halloween decorations up until Thanksgiving too. Especially jackolanterns. They are pumpkins!
Perfect! You really have the talent for figuring out what to quilt – I think that's the hardest part sometimes! I really can't wait to see the rest!
Oh, my, that is awesome! You are fantastic!
Wow! That is an amazing quilt! You did a fantastic job of quilting on it. Your son is going to love it! You have quite a knack for letting the quilt speak to you!
Great idea. Looks fabulous. Can't wait to see more. Hugs,
It looks so easy, but I personally know how difficult pebbling is – truly and art you have mastered, Linda! The bride and groom will have quite the quilt to begin their married lives together!
Wow, pebbling is something I've not done a lot of yet. Your design looks like it will be a winner for sure!
I love pebbling! It looks great! Uses a lot of thread though, but so worth it.
WOW! That looks so nice. Here I thought you were the master featherer, now you surprise me with your pebbling skills.
Is there anything you can't do? The pebbling is so unique; I love it.
I love this! It's GORGEOUS!
This is stunning. I love the red pebbling. Very cool!
I can't wait to see the rest! It is a cool quilt!
