This is Joyce's RRCB quilt, sent to me from North Carolina via a friend of hers that lives in Sequim. It was a circuitous route, but it made it.
Bonnie (Quiltville) usually tells you what colors to use, but even with that, I can never come up with good choices. Joyce obviously didn't have the same issue--her colors are great! This was a fun quilt to work on and I'm so glad I got the chance to quilt one of these. It was fun seeing her fabrics, too, as we seem to have several that are the same.
I did some line work in what I looked at as the focus block, with cc's around the triangles to frame it. I did a meander in the cream string blocks to push them back and make the others stand out. Joyce chose wool batting (my personal fave), so it quilted nicely. I love how my needle goes through wool batt like a knife through butter!!
This is the outside border. I wanted to do something a little different with all those tiny little squares, so I alternated loops and cc's. Made the outside fun and added a little "something."
And, finally, two shots of the back. Of course, the back was busy, so its not easy to see--but I had to include them. (try clicking on them...they get big enough for the detail to show) In person, it looked pretty neat!
Thanks for stopping by--and thanks, Joyce, for letting me have so much fun!
