Blog readers often send me quilt tops. I machine quilt the tops and bind them. Then the finished quilts are sent off to a worthy charity. This is one of those….
I am so embarrassed that it has taken me so long to quilt this quilt. It’s a beauty and I’ve always know it was. At first I didn’t know how to quilt it….then I realized how big and nice it was that I didn’t think it should be sent out as a charity quilt. I’ve thought it would do better as a raffle or auction quilt.
Then it got on the bottom of the stack. UGH.
Then after a blog reader asked me about quilting motifs and I said sometimes you just have to do it. I thought I best take my own advice. I went to the sewing room and pulled out this quilt.
Isn’t it gorgeous?? I love it. It’s scrappy and wonderful. All sorts of fabrics are included from plaids to batiks to tone on tones. As long as it was a shade of blue or green, it went in the quilt and it worked!!
Maker of the quilt, Cheri, writes the quilt top is Zigzay 9 by Cnthis Sary Drajna with Iowa Star Designs.
This is the motif I ended up using. It’s a favorite of mine.
See the close ups. You really can see that any blues and greens were included in the quilt.
Cheri sent the backing and binding. She made great picks for each.
I love that Cheri used the light green for the back ground. I typically think…background-white! I don’t think of other colors for backgrounds.
Thanks so much for sending the quilt top, backing and binding Cheri. I apologize it took me so long to get it finished but my-oh-my I think it turned out awesome.
I’m keeping this one in my pile for now waiting for the next worthy benefit to pass it on to….
