Jane's Quilt


Jane from New York contacted me to do her quilt. She wanted something simple, but fun. This is what I came up with. I hope she likes it!


There was a lot of piecing in this quilt with a ton of star blocks. It worked out so pretty and her quilt was really square so it helped make the quilting design flow. I was able to go from one side of the quilt to the other without stopping, which saves a huge amount of time.


She did request that the borders look 3-D and I think with the simple straight stitching that request was fulfilled.



And - the back was amazing! I love it when you have a back that shows off the quilting in the quilt. Also, she had a one piece backing, which I prefer because then you don't have any issues with stretching the pieced seams - it just works out nicer in my opinion.



If you are wondering, I just used my straight edge ruler for the straight seams and stitch in the ditch, then everything else was free motion quilting. I love how this one turned out!

Your quilting is absolutely amazing.
The quilt back could also be used as whole cloth quilt.
