Red and White Quilty love!

1 
So, this quilt is pieced by Jan.  It is a gift for her daughter who loves the color red.  I think it looks amazing and I had a lot of fun quilting this top up.  This is a design from Judy Martin's Stellar Quilts book, I found it on Amazon, here
Okay,  I used Glide thread, 1 layer of Hobbs 80/20 Cotton/Poly batting and Magna Glide bobbins.  Hopefully that answers all the questions before they are asked. ;-)

The goal for me was to not do as much tight quilting on this top.  This is more of a cuddle quilt and will be on top of a bed.  So, I did my very best to take out a lot of the detail I normally put into quilts and this is the end result. It looks perfect! I just love it.

The center of the quilt screamed "detail" at me, so you know - I had to do more on this one area of the quilt. Forgive me, please....

You can see how the center design works perfectly with the rest of the quilt.  I loved playing with the lines and coming up with the four squares with the feather wreath in the center of each one.  The feather wreaths also work well with the feather swirl design in the outside border of the quilt. 

5 
I think the stars worked out perfectly.  The straight lines emphasize the shape of the star and the quilting in the background makes them pop.

The star border was a little tricky at first, I wasn't sure what to do with it, but then realized that the pieced design would look better if I just echoed it with straight lines. Also, the cross-hatch worked out perfectly and compliments the design of the quilt so well.

Doesn't this pictures just make you want to rub your hands over the amazing texture?  Don't worry, I did plenty of that for you.  This really is the most satisfying part of quilting for me, seeing the designs come out in the background and feeling the texture.

I can't thank Jan enough for letting me work on this quilt.  I really hope her daughter loves it.

She picked a fun backing too, it shows the quilting really well.

Judi, I just love it. You always enhance the piecing. I find it funny that you think this is not a lot of quilting, and I am blown away by the amount you put in it. Just beautiful.

Magnificent quilting job, I don't know how you do it but kudos to you!

Rebecca Grace said...

You've done so many interesting things with this quilt, Judi! Like creating a little border around the cross-hatching where other quilters would have taken the cross hatching right up to the seam lines, and disregarding some of the piecing lines in the stars. It may not be as intricately detailed as some of your other quilts, but it really is beautiful and you did the quilt justice.

By the way, I think you may have approved the comment above mine by mistake...?

So beautiful! If her daughter doesn't like it, she can adopt me and I'll take it! :)
