Applique Quilts

May 6, 2017

Hi Everyone,


Two (2) quilts in this blog today.


The first is a spring shower....  Definitely, partly cloudy with a spring rain in the studio with this fun quilt.  Water was the theme of the 2015 Row by Row (it seems like last year - yikes).  It's Raining Cats and Dogs was the row for a local quilt shop.  This quilt came about through that row.  I love what my client did with this quilt.  It was fun to quilt....sun, clouds, a rainbow and rain, of course, completed the quilting.


Here is the before....


 ..., and, the after...


A rain shower needs a sun peaking through the clouds, right!?!


and, a rainbow is a must.... 


I decided to quilt seagulls in the clouds.  This will provide more interest but also keep the clouds from sagging.  I did not get an up close of the birds but you might see them in the above photos.


The second quilt quilt is was a ton of fun also, just in a little different way.  This customers' applique amazes me!  I really wanted her beautiful work to jump out at you. So, batting and quilting was the key combination.  I used a layer of Quilters Dream Cotton as the base with a layer of Hobbs 80/20 over it.  In order for the batting to do it's lofty job, dense quilting was a must. 


This is the before....


and, after quilted....


Details, love the details....


The back....  

I kept the quilting in the applique minimal to maximize the trapunto affect.


Thank you for visiting, and, a big thank you to all my customers!
