Up Close to My Quilting --- Thankful's Celebration Quilt


My customers come up with great quilting ideas!  I have quilted these pointy flowers before, but with filler quilting in between.  Thankful suggested that the pointy flowers could nest right next to each other. I love it!



Thankful chose a brown quilting thread.  It blends nicely over the whole.


I quilted wiggle lines in the borders.




Thankful's Celebration Quilt was made with all batik fabrics.



Flipping it over reveals more of the quilting and the beautiful blue flannel backing fabric.



You can see how the pointy flowers nest together.



The wiggle lines intersect and cross at the corners.






Several of us made the same quilt last year, November at Quilts by Barb's Quilt Retreat.  It is a great quilt pattern that looks fantastic with almost any kind of fabric. 

Over the next couple days, I will share all the Celebration Quilts that I quilted.

Here's a sneak peek of tomorrow's Celebration Quilt.



Enjoy!
Marcia
