IN THE STUDIO 1 Posted on 23 Nov 02:00 , 0 comments

Just a quick post today. Jan is a fairly new quilter and chose to work with this panel making a baby quilt for a friend. I quilted around each of the patch blocks in the inner border and outline quilted each of the letters, stars, and hearts. Ditching the blue borders helps stabilize the quilt and anchor the design.

Wiggly piano key border lines cross over the outer border print and 1112 HEARTS & BUBBLES fit just right over the inner panel design. I wanted to keep the quilting fairly open so the quilt will stay nice and soft ... drapey and cuddley yet sturdy through multiple washings.


Next step: Jan is signed up for a lesson on applying bindings

after the Thanksgiving holidays.

Another quilt off the machine in just the last few days was pieced by Catherine and will be an appreciation gift for a church member.  Simple signature quilt patterns are always a great way of showing how much you care and honoring the person and the gifts they share. The pattern I used for this quilt was designed by Deb Geisler and is an edge-to-edge called Feather Flowers, a very popular pattern with my customers.

Thanks for stopping by; take a minute to say "Hi" and remember ... set aside time to be creative every day.
