I saw Michelle’s quilt on Instagram long before she ever asked me to quilt it for her — and loved it even then. So I was SOOOOO excited when she asked me to quilt it for her!!
This was the first quilt I’ve done post QuiltCon, and I had a lot of fun incorporating elements from classes with Krista Withers and Jodi Robinson!
The quilting sort of has two personalities. The bottom left side is very structured, with nice frames around all the boxes. I love how the diamonds look like argyle.
The other side of the quilt I wanted a softer look. I used some broken wreaths from Krista’s classes along with designs I learned from Jodi’s classes to create the look I was going for.
I had so much fun quilting this! I actually used my mom’s APQS Millie on this one rather than my trusty Lucey, as there was a staff event happening at the store that I wanted to participate in…. so I got to longarm & actually be around people! It was kind of a new thing. Plus, I got to try out a bunch of new designs, so all in all, it was a great time.
That’s it for today! Later days!
