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.
