2018 Cabin Fever Quilters Raffle Quilt

This is the latest raffle quilt from Cabin Fever Quilters. In an attempt to make it more contemporary, they chose to do it in grays and brights--apparently, the original pattern was all muted tones. I think they did a great job! Don't you??

I apologize for the wonky pic, but this quilt was so big that I didn't have a good place to hang it for a photo. The good thing about that is my new photo spot! I will now be hanging quilts 8' off the floor in the living room. Should make for better shots with better lighting!

Since the makers opted for a more modern vibe with their fabrics, I opted for more modern quilting. Fewer feathers, more linework, etc.

This is a pic of the outer blocks on this quilt. If you click on it, the quilting will show a bit better. The only instruction I received prior to quilting was to not quilt anything on top of the applique.
This pic shows the frame around the frame around the center. I quilted the gray with both lines and meandering, breaking it in half at the applique line.

 This is the center of the quilt. I framed it with quilting in much the same way as the outer border, adding a little more detail in the corners.
A closer shot of the detail:
Here are a few shots of the back

Tickets are available now if you live in the PNW. Or if you really want some, let me know and I'll send them.
