I can't believe another Blogger's Quilt Festival has come around yet again. I have joined in quite a few Blogger's Quilt Festivals and thought I would again - thank you for organising Amy - I always enjoy visiting many of the other quilts. I know it is the Fall Festival, however, I am sharing what is very much a Spring Quilt given that it is Spring in Australia.
I have recently quilted a very cheerful strippy spring quilt for my customer Karin. Karin made this colourful quilt for one of her grand-daughters, alternating rows of stripped triangles with strips of appliqued birds.
As Karin's fabrics were very busy and the quilting on the strips of triangles would not show much, we decided to combine edge-to-edge and custom quilting. The triangle strips are quilted with an all-over design called Daisies Galore. The applique strips have been outlined around the applique and then quilted freehand with a back-ground fill.
I love the whimsical quilting around the birds.
I hope your Granddaughter is enjoying her beautiful quilt Karin.
Remember to go over to Amy's site and visit many of the other wonderful quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival - Fall 2012 - enjoy!
