Before I left town to visit my mom a couple of weeks ago, I finished another gorgeous quilt for Georgia. She always sends me the most fantastic quilts to finish. This one was no exception.It was especially fun to use some bright variegated thread that really pops on the black background.The pictures really don’t do it justice, and I am no photographer, but these few will give you an idea. I did a lot of stitch in the ditch, but most everything else was free-motion quilting.
I changed from a multi-colored thread to a variegated yellow/orange thread in some of the blocks. I love how it really shows up on the dark fabric. Some triangles I left un-quilted so they “pop up” with the heavy quilting around them. I used 2 types of batting: black 80/20 and wool. It gives the quilt a lot of dimension.The quilt is about queen size. I tried to get the the whole quilt in the picture, but this was the best I could do. It was hard to see this beauty go out the door!See more gorgeous quilts in the gallery of my website at pamsquilting.com.
