I’ve been busy quilting away and super excited to share this one with you. This is a customer quilt that I recently finished that will be a Christmas gift, so I promised not to disclose the name of the customer to keep the secret.
I absolutely loved studying all of the scraps lovingly pieced together and showcased in this beauty.
This is the largest quilt to be loaded on my longarm, and I used almost every inch of the 12 feet to pull it off. I learned quite a lot from this project. Since it was a modern design, I got to try out some geometric quilting in the outside border, some waves in the blue, and a curvy zig zag in the green. The funky curves were so much fun to quilt!
Isn’t the electric blue just stunning? I think so!
I went with an arrow motif for the body of the quilt. I didn’t get photos of the back, which was pieced as well. The arrows really stand out on the back as well.
Each block is cool, but I thought I’d share a few of my favorites. I just loved this fish.
I’m super envious of the fabric collection that contributed to this beauty.
The tigers were another favorite of mine.
It was so big, I couldn’t get a picture of the whole thing, but I just had to share what I could.
It is based on a pattern by Helene Knott of Oregon City. I’m thinking when I build my fabric collection large enough to pull this off, this is a quilt I just might make for myself someday!
