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!!
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
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!!

Show me the Quilts!
Not really interested in the ponies and the rest of my life? Would you rather just look at quilts?? You have two options: 1) in the search box below, type in "customer quilts," or 2) scroll down to the "labels" and click on "Customer Quilts." Either way, the eye candy is all yours. Enjoy!!
Dorothy, Dort and more recently, Dory. Yes, three names. I was called Dort when I was little (much better than Dot) and now its morphed into Dory. That's the problem with a name like "Dorothy." What do you do with it?? (For the rest of this thrilling saga, click on "About Me" at the top of the blog.)
I'd love to hear from you! crazyhorsequilting [@] gmail [.]com
