Quiltiness . . . .

Two more quilts home from the quilter . . . .

Welcome Home Baby Swoon!




I just love how the quilting really brings this top to life.


The intricate quilting around these big block pieces really adds interest to this quilt.



I'm sorry to say goodbye to this quilt but it's going to a good home . . . . . sometime.

For more information on this quilt see Lifetime Quilt Number 76.

Here's the other quilt that's home,

Mocha Trails, Lifetime Quilt Number 63.




When I finished piecing this quilt I loved the 9 patch blocks and the red rectangle pattern but didn't think much of the star blocks. I just didn't think they added anything to the quilt.



The quilting really brings the star blocks to life, I just love those star blocks now.



The quilting has a really nice flow, several different designs, but they all go together nicely.


This feather design flows through the red rectangles.



I'm still not tired of that Maison de Garance fabric by French General.


Another winner for the red couch!

These quilts were quilted by Linda at the Quilted Pineapple. She's only had her longarm machine a little over year, you wouldn't know it by looking at these quilts. Thanks Linda, I 'm thrilled to have my quilts home and couldn't be happier with your work.

  10. Just beautiful! The quilting is perfect for the pattern in the quilt... I believe it is important for the quilting to blend in rather than overwhelm, and your longarmer knows how to do it right!
