Quincy Crazy Quilters Opportunity Quilt

I'm honored to be asked to quilt the QCQ Opportunity Quilt again. This year they chose a Kim Diehl pattern (with a few changes) for their project.  Currently, its hanging in my studio as I decide how I want to make this one sing!!


Until I actually hung it up and stood back, I didn't notice the secondary pattern that appeared. I love how using only two blocks creates such interest. Now I have to decide which blocks I want to emphasize since I seem to have two options.


Opinions welcome and all will be considered. I won't be quilting this one until I return from Asilomar; too many other irons in the fire right now.

  3. Now this one is very pretty. I suggest ditch work around all the little squares with a cute little design in the white to make the squares pop. Then ditch work around all the applique with fill work in the open area to make the applique pop. Where can I buy tickets? Have fun with this one. Jane

    1. My thoughts are similar to yours, Jane. I'm thinking of feathering the oblongy (good word, eh) light colored areas around the small squares, with SID or a cute fill in the many squares. Still thinking on that one. Will certainly outline the applique with a nice fill behind. The guild has a budget, but with an Opportunity Quilt, I ignore it and quilt it like it was an heirloom quilt. I'm so honored to be doing them. When tickets are available, I'll post it here. Dory
