I would like to share with you a quilt made by Nicole which I have recently finished quilting. Nicole's quilt is made from nine-patches in greens and pinks, joined together into larger blocks (does that make it a 36 patch?) and alternated with blocks in an ivory fabric. The quilt also has a large border in the same ivory fabric. The large, open spaces cried out for intricate quilting to me. As the quilt is quite large, we decided on an all-over design called "Oma's Garden" by Sophie Collier. This pattern is quite intricate and has gorgeous feathers, flowers, hearts and leaves. I find it a great alternative to the more expensive option of custom quilting.
Here is a photo of the whole quilt - it was quite difficult to fit the whole quilt into the frame.
The following close-up of the quilt shows the amount of detail in this quilting design. The quilting has added a lot of detail to the plain areas and yet has not dominated the pieced parts of the quilt. This pattern is certainly one of my favourites although it does need to be quilted on the right quilt.
I hope you have enjoyed Nicole's quilt - enjoy your weekend and happy quilting.
