Latest Customer Quilt

Here are some photos of my latest customers' quilt.  It was a very interesting quilt, with very 1970's colors and very bold African-style prints.  We chose to do my Mix'N'Match style of quilting on it.  It is a simplified custom style -- but without the heirloom cost.  What is the difference?  Well, the back-fills are not as tight as in heirloom quilting...but it still gives a custom effect.

The leaf vine quilted in the sashing gave it an organic feel.

I choose to let the fabrics dictate the quilting.  While you can't see it very well in the pictures, printed rectangles were quilted using the "dot to dot" technique while motifs such as the bird and diamond were outlined.

This is the same picture without my drawing thread-paths on it.

I still love backs more than tops!  They are the "surprise" present of the quilt.  It shows the real detail put into the project.

The leaf-vine was outlined from the fabric prints on the front of the quilt.

It is true...."Quilting makes the quilt!"
