This quilt top, by Gerrie S. proved challenging as she wanted traditional stitch in the ditch quilting in the heirloom blocks. Most of the blocks are accented with a quilted free-motion rosette in the center and stitch in the ditch quilting on the outside. It is a beautiful quilt and I really enjoy the black backround fabric. It sets off the colors in the heirloom blocks nicely. The leaf and vine pattern was quilted in the sashing.

This quilt was pieced by Colleen D. It is from the same class as the above QBOM top, but completed with an entirely different setting. I love the colors--and so does my husband! She chose to have her blocks quilted using the Shadow Rhythmns technique by Sally Terry with Squiggle in the Ditch. If you double-click on the image, a slide show will pull up and then you can see the red thread detail work in the blocks.
This next quilt was pieced by Angela T. She also chose a high-loft, 8 ounce batting with squiggle in the ditch quilting in her lonestar and heirloom blocks and large scale stippling in the background areas. It is completed with a long-arm feather border.
|Beautiful colors in this lonestar block!|
