Sampler Quilt Finish

While looking through my quilt pictures to decide which quilts to enter in the Blogger's Quilt Festival, I came across some pictures of a client's quilt I meant to share.

This quilt is made from the book Vintage Quilt Revival by Katie Clark Blakesley, Lee Heinrich and Faith  Jones.  I love the vibrant colors against the soft gray background fabric.

I quilted each block differently but I tried to use the same shapes to keep the quilt cohesive.

Some blocks were very organically quilted while others had a lot of line work in them.

And of course, some were a mixture of both.


The wide outside borders were also fun to quilt with these big overlapping swirls.  You can also see a few more blocks with some matchstick and straight line quilting in them.


But I think my favorite quilting in the whole quilt was the way the quilting in the sashing echos out from the cornerstones.

The back was mostly negative space so the quilting really shows up!

Have I told you guys how I have the best job (and best clients) ever!

I'm still a straight-line quilter (who hopes to tackle FMQ before the end of the year!) and I can't help but wonder how long it took you to quilt that project on your long arm. Forever?! : )

Wow, this is so inspiring! I will be coming back several times to gaze at what you did on this one when it comes to ideas for quilting my quilts. I, too, really like the radiating circles! What a lucky customer to have you to put the icing on the cake so to speak.
