Sherri's fun and fast quilt................

***Update*** This pattern is called Paper Roses by Fig Tree Quilts. You can get it here.


So, this is Sherri's quilt - excellent piecing job as always! :) I had a great time with this because I was able to do a quicker quilting design on it.


I didn't mark any of this quilt - it's all free motion - so that's why everything isn't exactly the same.


I wanted to create flowers in between the blocks and this was what I came up with.


In the triangles I did some swirl feathering - that was fun - I love feathers as you know. I can't get enough of them.


Swirls in the border.


I think this quilt is really fun and I am glad to have it finished for Sherri. Sorry it took so long!

Amazing quilting again Judi! I'm sure Sherri will be thrilled. What a beautiful Bliss quilt.

Rhonda said...

beautiful! I love how you filled the white spaces; it looks like a funky wavy flower.

Quiltjane said...

A brilliant job (as usual). Why don't you make instructional videos on all your designs and how you plan, mark and quilt them.

Kelly said...

Incredible job. I'm at a loss for words!

Karen Wilson said...

I adore your work, I wish I had the time to practice to get even close to that... but then again, I wish I had the time to make the quilt tops that were deserving of such fine quilting!
On this quilt I especially love the zig-zag strips which created the triangles around the edge.

Your quilting is ALWAYS pure pleasure on the eyes.

I second QuiltJane's suggestion. I had a lot of fun quilting flower swirls all over one of my last quilts after watching your You Tube video. I consider myself a beginner longarmer but had no problem following your directions. I would buy instructional videos from you in a heartbeat!

Judi, What beautiful free motion quilting, It is so fantastic and makes the quilt come to life. Do you take orders for quilting? I have a couple of quilts that I want to make but cannot find anyone locally who does similar work.

Wow! I have seen a lot of this pattern, Paper Roses, made up in different fabrics but I can honestly say that this is the most amazing quilting I have seen on it. Fabulous job Sherri & Judi! Feeling a little bit jealous I must say.
