Kevin Got His Quilt

A few months ago, Kevin of Kevinthequilter fame, sent me a quilt to quilt for him...of course, it is a QOV because that cause is near and dear to his heart!  This quilt was so much fun because it only had 4 traditional blocks and those little puppies were on the corners of the borders!!  Modern quilting, here we go!!
See those little gray/blue stings bound by black?  Those are the only "blocks" in the quilt!!  Kevin had a blast piecing crumbs to create the panels...I know, some folks wouldn't call them crumbs, but at my house, most of them would have ended up inside a pet bed!!  Those panels don't lend themselves to point-to-point quilting, so I did what I wanted until I got bored or tired of doing it and switched to a different pattern!  Hard to see, but I centered a U in the red panel, S in the cream and A in the blue.

The backing was cool too:
Great movement just in the pattern of the fabric.

Here are some close-up shots of the quilting in the red:



 Finally the borders and sashing:

This was a fun quilt to quilt and I love being told to do whatever I want with the quilting!!  I can't wait to see what it looks like when he gets the binding on!!!  Since he is currently between homes, not sure when he will get it finished, but he was happy when he got the quilt last week! 

Thanks, Kevin, for letting me have fun with your quilt!!
