Hello friends, readers and others! Today I have a bit to share with you so buckle in and let me get started.
A sample for The Country Yard called Nine Patch Wonder. A pretty soft and feminine quilt.
Kerryn (shop owner) asked for an all over quilting design, this one is called "Far East Leaf".
Next is another sample for The Country Yard. a Rail Fence quilt, complete with prairie points.
Kerryn wanted the best of both worlds for this quilt, all over quilting and a touch of custom quilting.
The middle section is quilted with swirls and feathers, completely hand guided, no patterns, stencils or marking, just fancy free farm quilting folks!
The sashing was ditch stitched on the inner side but not on the side the prairie points are connected, here I echoed the points, then on the outer edge of the border I feathered and swirled to balance in with the inner section. Both of these quilts are available as kits from The Country Yard.
A back view for you.........................
The third quilt is another sample for The Country Yard. This time the Tuesday Mystery Medallion .
For this beauty I custom quilted, plenty of the ditch stitching, cross - hatching, piano keyed border and pebbles.
I LOVE the texture and 'pop' the pebbles create! I used a fine blending thread for these pebbles, because it's all about the texture.
Classic, timeless cross - hatching was spot on for the next 'round' of this reproduction beauty.
The next round was the ultimate playground for the quilter................so feathers came out to play!
|this was taken before I echoed the feathers.|
In the corners where the baskets lay, I filled in the background with textures.
The next round was simple.......................more cross - hatching..................................
Just between you and I, I chewed over what to quilt on the outer border, I wanted something classic, something that framed and 'ended' the quilt, I kept coming back to using the piecing from the delectable mountain pieced border as my guide.
A couple more photo's while the sun is shinning!
I finished my last round last night on my Medallion, now all that is waiting is for it to be quilted, can anyone recommend a quilter? :-)
