This beautiful quilt was made as a gift for a 50th wedding anniversary.

This quilt almost used up all of the space on my 12' frame. I love doing these big quilts, especially when it is pieced as meticulously as this one!

We chose an all-over leafy design called "Harvest Winds" I really enjoyed the way that this one turned out!
This next quilt is going to be a gift at a baby shower. We decided to put some custom work on this baby! Boy-o it sure jazzed up this quilt!
I outlined everything in clear thread to start, which made a huge difference!
Then I added some flowey lines in the sky and loops in the clouds. Then each of the animals got a different treatment. The lions got loops, the zebras got a geometric design...
and the giraffes got a stipple to mirror their puzzle pattern.
I'm heading on up to Portland tomorrow for the Machine Quilters Expo. I can't wait to learn some great new techniques and designs.
Have a great week, and happy quilting!
