Ballerina Quilt

Kate from One Flew Over has recently made a Ballerina Quilt, the making of which she has outlined extensively on her blog.  It is a beautiful quilt made with some lovely vintage fabrics.

When Kate initially asked me to quilt this quilt with "straight wavy lines" I was a little concerned.  Straight wavy lines don't really go with my usual need for perfection - it was certainly a request outside my comfort zone.  Once I got started I had a great time quilting this quilt and I love the end result.

You can see Kate's quilt on her blog after washing and drying - perfectly crinkled.  Anyone else for straight wavy lines?


  1. I'm so glad you stepped a little out of your comfort zone..your quilting on this is fantastic.

    Thanks Karen. It is a much loved quilt x

  2. Fabulous! Lovely fabrics made lovelier with your quilting Karen!

  3. I love this quilt of Kates, and your straight line quilting made it perfect. xo

  4. That looks great! I have a longarm...just wondering when you did that...did you simply eyeball it?

  5. I love the straight line quilting and the slight randomness to it. Very nice!

  6. I'm very interested! I have a Mendocino mermaid quilt top that I am just too nervous to quilt and I'm looking for something that goes along with the ocean theme of it..water, waves etc. this might be right for me. Could you please contact me at to discuss, pricing etc. thank you!!!


I really appreciate your comments - they will appear shortly.
