I forgot the title….

Here are some quilts that were done before the New Year.

Dara’s Quilt

Dara made this colorful quilt using charm packs. It is so good to be  able to use

those charm packs that we buy but just sit there. It looks very modern to me.

A white polyester thread was used for the top of the quilt while a medium blue polyester

thread was used on the back of the quilt. Spiral Rings is the name of the pattern stitched all

over the quilt top.

The backing

The backing is very vibrant and colorful. You can see how different it looks when you

are close to it. Alot of fun.

Kaffe Fassett fabric

Dale made the following quilt below. She really amazes me as she is such a quick quilter.

I really love the fabric and colors of this quilt. Dale wanted it custom quilted but the

pattern had me stumped for a while.

Dale’s Quilt

I stitched around all the diamond shapes with a monofilament thread. All that stitching

helps to stabilize the quilt while also making all those diamonds so crisp and detailed.

I know alot of longarmers don’t like the ditch stitching but it is so necessary for outlining

blocks and motifs.

In the diamond shapes, I outlined the flowers in that area. Why fight with the  print when

it is so beautiful?

In the star blocks, I outlines the stars and stitched around the diamond, 1/4 inch from the edge

of the block.

In the white sashing area. I stitched a 1/4  line on the outside edges and then a straight line

down the middle of the sashing. I also stitched the same star shape in the white areas. Looking

back now, I am not sure I would do that again. I think that I would use a different motif

as there are too many stars for my liking.

The backing fabric is gorgeous! I usually don’t like peach as a color but this fabric

is beautiful.

A close up of the backing material with all the stitching completed. I love the graphic

look of this fabric as well. What do you think?

Have a great week and linking up the The Needle and Thread Network.
