This is a customer quilt which has occupied my frame since the beginning of December...2 months! Okay, I was gone for 4 weeks, but still! It is a sampler quilt, set on-point, and surrounded by two different blocks (one a pieced basket, I don't know what the other one is), setting triangles and then the usual 2 inner and larger outer border. The quilt was very willing to stretch in any and every direction, so I stabilized it by doing SID around all the 12" blocks and basted the sides down. I am now working my way to the top by doing SID and feathers in the blocks. I will do all 16 basket block fillers at the same time, but the center blocks are all different so I am getting to design a different pattern for each one. It has been fun, especially since I've gotten my step-son's girlfriend (Brandi) to give me advice on quilting motifs! She's never done a thing with making or quilting a quilt, but I have her hooked!! She suggested a motif, I drew it out and she loved it, so I'll use it cuz it's a good one!!
So here are a few pictures of a few of the blocks...not all the quilting is done and yes, there is chalk on one of the blocks to remind me of what I think I want to do when I get back that way with the right color of thread!
I think your doing a nice job! More pic's please
Your quilting is just beautiful!
Beautiful quilt and your quilting is just WOW :)
