Heeeeee's Baaaaaaaack . . . . .


Look who's back from the quilter.......


Jake!!

I don't care what pattern you choose when quilting your top, there's just something about that rumpled, bumpy quilted look that really sets off a quilt.

But in this case, the quilting is pretty phenomenal . . . . .


Here's a view of the back.




And here you can sort of pick out how lovely the design looks from the front.

I was thinking Jake would hang over the bannister in living room,


but I threw him over the red couch, just to keep him off the floor, and I love him there. I've never had a quilt on either sofa that wasn't red, but I like this change of pace.

For more information on Jake you can select Quilt # 58, Climbing Jacob's Ladder II from my lifetime quilt list in the right hand column.

  11. What I want to know is, who's your quilter and do they accept out of state jobs? Can't believe the fast turn around time and the great quilting job!
