Hello again! We had been on vacation and it is nice to be able to show off a quilt that I finished this week. It belongs to a client named Sherry. She made this for her son and future daughter-in-law who will be getting married soon (great gift, right?). Sherry did a beautiful job selecting fabric and piecing. This quilt was a pleasure to work on, and honestly I just loved looking at these mellow colors every day.
Above you can see the quilt close up on the longarm machine. Sherry chose the pantograph Bauhaus which is sort of an overlapping rectangles design. It tied in with the contemporary feel of the quilt perfectly. I used the thread color "cheesecake" and it blended really well with all the colors and really stood out the best on the quilt's black border.
The pattern for this quilt top is a basket weave design. Sherry found it on the Internet somewhere, though I don't know the exact name of the pattern to share with you. This is a big quilt, and I had a hard time getting the whole thing in the picture!
If you love the fabrics she used, you can find them at the Little Foot Quilt Shoppe in Evans City, PA (along with lots of other great quilting stuff).
Thank you, Sherry, for letting me quilt for you!
I hope your summer is going well. Mine is, and I have a lot of
quilting projects going on to show you soon. So please stop back again.
I'll be linking in with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday.
You can visit there, too, to see what other quilters are finishing up this week.
