Liz's Modern Sampler
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 :D
Later days! Kathleen.
