Heather made this quilt top in reds, whites, and beige colors - just so awesome. She did a wonderful job of piecing! When we talked about what she wanted, Heather was very clear that she wanted it peaceful - and didn't want the quilting to overtake the piecing, but rather work with the piecing. She chose the stencil design for the plain blocks, and I quilted each of the pieced blocks differently - but remained simple. I "ditched" around each block, and added an extra 1/4" border in each of the plain blocks . . . I love how it turned out! . . . and so did Heather - I think between the two of us we captured what she wanted for her quilt. Here's a bit of a photo journey of the process . . .
just starting out - stitching around each block in the "red" .... see how the SID makes the block stand out?
....working down through the quilt -
done . . .
backing . . .looks as nice as the front!
See why I love custom quilting??? Lots more coming . . . from the Little House . . .
