Barb of Rainbows and Calico Things quilt shop makes great quilts! Her fabric selection is awesome! Check out her quilt shop online or in person. Here’s one of her latest dubbed “Summer Fruits”. The placement of the greens and pinks make a super canvas for fun quilting and variegated thread. I decided to quilt it with “back and forth” feathers using the blocks as guides which creates another pattern with the stitching. The borders are quilted with separate designs and the zig zag inner border is quilted with double back and forth feathers. The batting is Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton.
My dear friend Christal just celebrated a birthday and I sent her this quilt! Thanks to Candy, Double Nickel Quilt Challenge, for agreeing to pool our blue and yellow fabrics to make this quilt (actually we have enough to make 4!). I love how the fabrics create a secondary pattern and the “corner/middle/corner” quilting in the blocks creates more secondary patterns with the stitching. I used variegated thread in the outer and inner borders and solid yellow for the center blocks. The batting is Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton.
Mary has made a fun quilt perfect for the Rosie pantograph and Dream Puff batting. The batting is light and fluffy sure to please the granddaughter recipient. The pantograph is whimsical adding fun designs, lots of stitching without being dense. Quilter’s Dream Puff batting is great for photographs, the designs really pop!
Candy spoils her granddaughters! She has made 3 quilts using the Buggy Barn “Butterflies” pattern each with it’s own color palette. The last one was yellow and even though I tried to quilt them all the same, each one is slightly different than the previous. Because I’ve only recently started to take quilting pictures I had to get finished pictures from Candy to help me remember how to quilt them. I keep a diary with quilting notes about thread, batting and design but a picture is better!
