Quilt-y-ness . . . .

Several of you sent me notes about my blog redesign saying not only did you notice that my blog was now sitting in the middle of my Red and White Tribute Quilt, but it looked like my Red and White Tribute was quilted!
Very observant of you, and so right!

Yes it's true, my Red and White Tribute Quilt has been quilted.
It was quilted by Connie Lancaster at Quilts Plus in Indianapolis, IN.

Here it is, all done. I could not be happier.

Each mini quilt in this project was quilted uniquely. Connie went with a perfect combination of new and old quilting designs, I think it adds so much to the overall look and feel of the quilt.


So here's the center, it's hard to go wrong with feathers.


We chose a more modern design for the Jacobs Ladder quilt.


And some swirls for the snowball blocks.


More feathers to surround the stars,


and some wreaths and crosshatching for my houses.


Finally, a different wreath pattern for the double nine patch quilt.


It's so hard to believe that after spending my whole summer devoted to this project that it's all done. Nothing left to do now but enjoy it!

  18. After being as inspired as you seem to have been with the Red and White Exhibit this year, l am holding our own Red and White Exhibit in my barn next year. What fun it would be, if you were not so far away, to have your quilt hanging with ours. Thanks for sharing your quilt with the blogging world.
    Linda.

  21. How thrilled I was for you when I opened my newly arrived issue of American Patchwork & Quilting and saw your red and white tribute quilt there! It looks fabulous in the magazine and it showcases your hard work and creative idea. I enjoy your blog though I have not commented before. I was introduced to yours from Sister's Choice. I miss Nicole! Linda
