I picked up 2 of my quilts from my local machine quilter. He only does edge to edge designs so I don't have him quilt any custom quilts. Still his patterns and precision are superb. This quilt is made from the book "Jelly Roll Quilts" by Pam Lintott. I used a Bali Pop and batik background.
Here's the backing.... This quilt top was started in 2005 I think. I took a class from my friend Karen on value and we used a book by Karen Combs called Combing through your Scraps. It is really 9-patches and split 9-patches in light and dark values that make the basket block.
I picked dragonflies for the quilting because one of the fabrics had dragonflies in it. I hope you can see the quilting.
I finished the binding on this quilt on the road back from South Carolina. It's a pattern called 5 and Dime by All Washed Up Quilts. My DD2 is just over 2 years old and has proclaimed her favorite color is purple..good thing as this quilt has quite a bit of purple in it. Notice her purple sheets and rug. She has purple shoes too and rarely wears any other pair. She's quite a character.
