Last weekend was so nice. The weather was beautiful on Sunday!!! A great day for cleaning up the landscaping. I wouldn’t know anything about that, but Scott sure did! 🙂
The next quilt I want to share is a quilt from my client Rita. It’s the perfect quilt to share with Spring in the air! I’ve had the pleasure to quilt for Rita before. She does such a beautiful job!
A gorgeous quilt in pastel batiks! I believe Rita used a couple of Bali Pops and yardage. This quilt is huge!!! I did not really realize how big it was until I took it out to measure!
I could barely fit it in the photos! This quilt is Moriah’s quilt, Rita’s niece. Rita thought she would like some type of flower quilting. My freehand allover flower…fit the bill!!!
Rita did have one request, she wanted her niece’s name somewhere quilted on the quilt. This was a new twist for me. I hadn’t up until now quilted words onto a quilt. So I practiced a few times on my whiteboard writing it out just so I could exercise my muscle memory and get a feel for the movement when I quilted it.
I love how it turned out on the quilt!
I quilted a flower to dot the “i”. I really tried to make her name just blend in with the design of the quilt. After I quilted the name, Scott kept saying to me that he sure hoped I got the name right!!! Ummm, me too!! 🙂 LOL!
Scott took the photos of the quilt. He did a good job of capturing how perfect the stitches are. Sometimes I forget to take closeups of the quilting and stitches.
Rita used a gorgeous batik backing that matches perfectly!!
Specifics…all the quilting is freehand. I used Dream Blend Batting. LOVE it!!! Worked beautifully with the batik backing!! The thread is a gorgeous pale blue from Isacord.
I used it top and bobbin. I think between the Isacord and the Dream Blend Batting, the stitches just quilted like butter!! Rita was thrilled with her quilt. I’m sure her niece will be too. I know the girls loved it!! 🙂
Hope everyone has a great day!
