Sallie's beauties -

First we have an awesome quilt belonging to Sallie.  It is called Rainy Day (pattern by Laundry Basket Quilts/Edyta Sitar).  This turned out super cute, I love adding free-flowing feathers to just about anything!



And then Sallie had another Edyta Sitar pattern, Friendship Spools (it's from the Friendship Strips & Scraps book).  Again, a super cute quilt:



On this quilt I did a simple looping meander.  The background fabric Sallie chose (which looks like needles and pins) is great -- it is what I call a forgiving fabric.  It doesn't really show the quilting as well as other fabrics - it forgives any mistakes.  This is why I chose to keep it simple here - if you can't really see the quilting, why would you spend hours and charge more money to the client to create it?  Just one of those things I believe...

Anyway, two awesome quilts from an awesome client!

  3. Wow! What a fantastic way to quilt the Rainy Day top! It adds so much to the applique/piecing without overpowering it. Way to go Karen. Love it.
