I don’t even know how to begin explaining how much I love this quilt. I had the honor and pleasure to quilt this large, gorgeous quilt from my client Sharon. Sharon is a former co-worker at the quilt shop. She also is a member of our guild. We have become really good friends in the last few months, unfortunately for me, although I am happy for Sharon, she is moving out of state next month. I was super nervous to quilt for her because she is a very accurate, precise and excellent quilter. Thank goodness all my nervousness did not translate to my quilting because I am very happy with how the quilt turned out!
I quilted a meandering feather allover in the center. I love this design!! It’s going to be one of my favorites.
I quilted a chubby leaf design in the sashing. Perfect for the Fig Tree fabrics used in this quilt.
I love the outer borders with a whimsical, swirl feather.
Can you believe I forgot to take a pic before I started quilting??? Oh well. The back is so gorgeous too. All beautiful texture. Sharon opted for wool batting, which really shows off the quilting.
The funny thing is I always take lot of pics while I’m quilting on the machine to download on the computer to look at. It gives me a better perspective of how the quilting looks. Even if I think I really like the quilting, while I’m doing it I see every little thing and I am so close that I start to question how it looks.
After I saw this…no question.
I know I may have mentioned just a few times how much I’ve loved the client quilts I’ve quilted and how difficult it to give them back…well I actually DID get this quilt back!! Just temporarily. 🙂 Sharon just left for Paris yesterday for a little vacation with her two daughters. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?? She is going to miss our guild meeting Monday and then she’ll be moved before the June meeting, so I am going to take this quilt to show at the meeting on Monday in Sharon’s absence. Sharon was extremely pleased with her quilt! She just loves it!! I had a feeling she might.
I’ve been busy quilting on Annie. I’m thinking she is going to need a spa day soon…me too! LOL! I’m off to catch up on emails and blogs.
