First Quilt for 2010

Finally - I have finished my first quilt for 2010!

The quilt I am sharing today is my customer Anne's quilt who has made a traditional sampler quilt.  I love the traditions of quilting and the fact that many quilters start on their quilting journey with a sampler quilt.  This is Anne's first quilt and she had done a great job hand piecing it.

I think it took me a while to get started with quilting this year as this first quilt was a custom quilt and quite a challenge on the brain with each block being different.  As you can see, I went with lots of feathers, some continuous curves and line-dancing.  Here are some of the blocks:-

The border has been quilted with swags with feathers in them.  The pink sashing has a swirl design while the white and green sashing have yet more feathers.

There are several more photos of different blocks on my Flickr page for anyone interested.

I hope Anne will be pleased with her quilt and that this is the start of a great quilting journey for her.  I am off to do a quilt with an all-over design now..
