Featured Quilt

I thought that it would be appropriate to make my first post in honour of the talented creator of the QUILT featured on the header of my blog.  She is very skilled at piecing and has an amazing sense of colour. It is always such a joy to work on her finished master pieces. 

This QUILT has special meaning and I was touched by the story behind it.  You see, it was one that was started by her sister who recently passed away, and out of love she took it home and finished it for her sister's daughter. What a treasured keepsake.  This QUILT is already an heirloom.  It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. A labour of love for sure.  Thank-you for entrusting it to me to QUILT.  It truly was an honour.

I love the way the QUILTING turned out.  Not only is this customer excellent at choosing fabrics and matching up colours nicely, but she also has a talent for picking the perfect pattern to QUILT on her quilts as well.

Here is a shot of the back of the QUILT.  To me, the QUILTED back should be just as beautiful as the QUILTED top.  It looks so nice when the thread stands out to show off the pattern.  I really like the backing fabric and how it is speckled with bits of colour here and there.  Here is the pattern that I used on this quilt.  It is an edge to edge pattern and is called Jacobean.  It is simple but very pretty quilted.
