Carol has made another fantastic quilt. Can you imagine the hours she spent
creating this beauty?
There is alot of small pieces in the sashing area. I don’t think
that I would have the patience to cut those all out and then sew them back
It is incredible.
For the outside border area-the light yellow section-Carol wanted
staright lines. I do think that they are great in this area too.
In the triangular area, I did the straight lines too.
In the purple sqaure, I quilted straight lines to mimmic the shape.
Carol likes straight lines alot and I do too.
In the sashing area, I SID around all those little pieces. Yes, it did take some
time but it is worth the time and effort. It is amazing how the quilt transforms
when the quilting is complete. It makes it come to life.
I used a purple polyester thread for the purple squares and a variegated thread
for the sashing area. A light yellow polyester thread was used to SID around the
yellow sections though.
And for the backing, a light tan thread was used. The texture of the quilting
is really evident on the back. It looks great!
I love the back as much as the front – all that texture.
The backing with the border included. I forgot that there is a small
purple border too. In that section, I quited two straight lines. It seemed
that it didn’t need alot of fussy motifs in this area because there is alot
going on in the main section of the quilt.
Hope you enjoyed the eye candy.
Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends out there.
