Liz’s Modern Sampler

IMG_0754

I was super excited to be able to quilt Liz’s Modern Sampler Quilt. Liz made this quilt in a club at Quilting From The Heart that I was a part of, and so I got to watch her make this! We joked a lot in class as Liz is a very particular quilter — she would spend as long choosing colours for a block as I would spend making a block. So I knew that I had to spend as effort quilting as she did piecing.

I won’t lie to you guys, I really feel like I pulled it off. I had the most fun quilting this, from start to finish.

Liz was here first thing this morning to pick it up, so I think she was excited about it. I had to make her wait until I took pictures before I would let her take it home.

While the background was certainly the most fun, I did have fun coming up with different designs for each block as well.

I opted for only one thread colour for each block, which sometimes did limit my quilting choices, but didn’t hurt the overall effect of the quilt.

I had lots of fun with the little bumpy things (like in the blue border below). It wasn’t a design I had done before, but Is definitely be one I’ll do again! A great alternative to bubbles in larger spaces.

That’s it for me today! I’m taking a bit of a break, I don’t have any customer quilts scheduled until late January! Some time off for Christmas and moving our stores. But I’m sure I won’t be able to stay away from Lucey for that long 😀

Later days!
Kathleen.

  1. Outstanding work ! This is a really inspiring piece by both of you.
    Can I ask….did you mark the chevron position before loading and what product did you use….am always so nervous when marking customer quilts . Thanks for any advice !

  2. those blocks are fun to quilt, aren’t they? I ‘m sure Liz was thrilled, and her careful fabric choices really paid off.
