This week I quilted this lovely quilt for Kathy who has been working on piecing it for several years. It is a wonderful feeling to finish a project that you have been working on for so long, I know! And this quilt is so pretty. It is a sampler quilt designed by Eleanor Burns in her book called Egg Money Quilts. Eleanor has written so many patterns and books, and I couldn't even find it on her website, but the link to her site and the Egg Money DVD is here. If you are interested in the book you'll have to Google it.
Anyhow, here is a pic of Kathy's whole quilt, and isn't it beautiful? I love the collection of old traditional pieced and applique blocks and the 1930's reproduction fabrics.
I quilted using white thread and what I consider very light custom quilting. I did a figure-8 design in the outside border and loopy meandering inside. If you look closely at some of the photos you can see that Kathy put a large orange rick rack in the seam of the border. It is a really nice detail that adds interest, and I didn't want to quilt over that.
Thank you, Kathy, for letting me quilt this one for you!!
Also this week I added 2 new pantographs to my collection. One of them was purchased for a super hero quilt that I'll soon be quilting. Can you guess which one?
I hope you've been inspired as I have by these traditional quilt blocks this week. Thanks for reading, and I'll be linking up over at Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday.
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
