Pat's Lattice Quilt

Pat is a member of the Port Townsend Guild, Cabin Fever Quilters. She put this beautiful lattice quilt together from a kit and asked me to quilt it.

These are always challenging as I like to quilt them so it actually looks like the lattice is intertwined.

You can see more what I'm talking about here with the cream colored lattice. See how it goes behind the green and red? Well, that's what its supposed to be doing!!

Another shot...just because.
Thanks for looking!

Leslie's Attic Window/Winter View

Isn't this great???  Leslie has been on a panel roll lately and I'm loving how they're all looking. Makes me want to get out the zillions of panels I have and do something creative with them.

The fabrics she chose for the borders are just perfect--its almost like you really are looking through a window.  I just love this! Here are a couple close-ups of the "windows." As you can see, the quilting is super simple. I don't want to take away from the view!

Diamonds with loops in the middle for the first border.

And a squiggly triangle design, ala Angela Walters, in the outer border.

I have got to find my panels! Maybe I'll find them and just send them to Leslie!!

Charlene's Kaffe Circles

Charlene is a new customer that I've just met. She gave me two beautiful quilts to work on--this was the first one. I love the simplicity of this design!

I wanted those circles to pop and the background to recede, so it was lots of lines in the white and little "flowers" in the circles.

I finished off the border with Piano Keys to balance the lines in the background. I also did little flowers in corners of the sashing and border to carry that design to the outside as well.

I even managed a couple of good shots of the back...

This one shows the wishbone sashing and Piano Key border.

Wait til you see her next one. Her quilts are just fresh and lovely!

Sheila's Orange Quilt

Sheila surprised me with this quilt at guild the other day. It always surprises me when people walk up and just hand over their quilts for me to work on. I guess I've never gotten over the trust they put in me--I hope I never do!

I had those large on-point squares that I could really play in, but I wasn't able to do that this time. Instead I did a simple line-work and CC design to fill the space.

I modified the design a bit to fit the setting triangles.

The border fabric was quite busy, but still needed something. The design I chose is a wavy, pointed Angela Walters design. It filled the space and added some texture. You can almost "see" it in the next two pics.

This is a shot of the back showing the texture.

And another shot of the back that sort of shows the overall design

Thanks for looking!

Penny's Churn Dash

Penny sent this quilt along for some quilting and I fell in love with it. I love the Churn Dash block, so it was a fun one for me to quilt.

Unfortunately, the pic above really doesn't do it justice. the actual churn dash blocks are whiter than they appear in the photo...not this ugly yellowish color. The pic below is a more accurate representation of the color. If you click on it to make it bigger, you can see that I did a "four-part" feather motif in the on-point squares, a freehand crosshatch in the blue squares, and ribbon candy with cc's in the churn dash along with a flower in the centers.

Below is a shot of the back. I love when the quilting shows up!!

Thanks for taking the time to look!
