Bernice entrusted me with her first appliqué quilt that she made 20+ years ago. She had the top put together and stored in a drawer – she even had a backing and left over fabric for the binding. She originally was going to hand quilt a half inch grid behind the appliqué and had started marking the grid lines. I love quilting for Bernice because she gives me some ideas and then lets me run from there. I kept her idea of grids and then added to it.
Bits & Pieces
I always enjoy working on a quilt for Bernice. This was a special project for Bernice – she pieced this quilt for her 96 year old friend to give to one of her grandchildren.
I really enjoyed working on this quilt for the Mobile Quilter’s Guild. They put together a very traditional quilt and wanted traditional quilting with a “touch” of modern. I really liked the challenge of this quilt.
I had the great opportunity to quilt this beautiful quilt for the Mobile Quilter’s Guild. It is the Opportunity quilt for their 2017 quilt show. The quilt features many different types of appliqué techniques. It is not the color palette that I usually work with so I actually had to buy some thread. =) I used a double layer of 80/20 batting which gave the quilt such wonderful texture. This really helped the quilting “pop” in areas where the fabric was busy. I loved the white space in the border.
