Shop Hop Quilt & Sue's Sampler

           Hello friends, readers and followers, I have two customer quilts to share today.
              First is Pam's Shop Hop quilt. Pam participated in the Northern Shop Hop.

You may remember seeing this same design on my blog a while back (see here if you missed it).  Out of eight different quilts Pam chose The Country Yards one. I wanted to quilt Pam's quilt in a different way to The Country Yards sample. Pam lets me have free range on her quilts, bless her!

      On the nine patch variation blocks I quilted a Creek Key, I LOVE the look, slightly modern.

            Slightly difficult to see on this busy fabric but there are echoed arcs and pebbles.
                                                         See below for a better view.

Loving the centre stitchery block, textures, sweet textures! Pebbles and a sprinkling of little swirls!

                           Wanna see that closer?..........................

                                                    Big swirls and leaves for the outer border.

                                                One for the back lovers out there!

               Next a completely different quilt and completely different quilting, Sue's sampler.

Sue has made this for her daughter over in Texas. Sue asked for an all over quilting design, also known as edge to edge quilting because the quilting design travels over the entire quilt regardless of any piecing, sashing or borders, which makes for very cost effective quilting.

The Pattern I used is called "Espalier" which is soft and gives nice textures, for the quilting to blend nicely I used a beigey coloured thread called Mother Goose.

                          Pretty isn't it! Thanks Sue, I hope your daughter loves it.


  1. I love looking at your quilting designs, Leeanne, just so thoughtful for each quilt. I particularly love the colours in the shop hop quilt too - nicely done, Pam!

  2. Love the quilt. ..the fabrics are beautiful. Wonderful quilting x

  3. Both very lovely quilts Leeane but I especially love Pams quilt - the fabrics & the little stitcheries she has used, just beautiful. No Supervisor today ??

  4. Love the quilting you did on both these but oh my the quilting on Pam's shop hop quilt has me going back to it for closer looks. Love how you just put a few swirls amongst the pebbles in the centre block-just enough. Keep looking at the Greek cross quilting as it really makes that block into something special. I am sure Pam loves it.

  5. Always find so much inspiration when you share your quilting with us!

  6. Lovely quilts, Leeanne! You are a star in finding the right quilting patterns for the quilts!
    Have a Nice weekend, Cisca

  7. Well done Pam on finishing her shophop quilt so quickly!! It's lovely, always interesting how you treat replicas of the same quilt! The espalier panto is a nice one on Sue's pretty quilt too.

  8. I like thelittleswirls among the pebbles, nice touch. That swirl and leaf border pattern was shown on Fons and Porter show yesterday. Was fun to see it used in your quilt. All the quilting is pretty, well done!

  9. your quilting sure does make those embroidered blocks shine. just lovely.
