I have two bright cheery quilts to share with you today from Cathy K.
“I have two beautiful finishes to show you today. These tops were sent
to me by McGill U. in South Carolina. What a pleasure it was to quilt
these beautifully pieced and colorful quilts!
The first quilt I’m showing is actually a top that McGill made from
the scraps and leftovers of the second quilt. You’ll see… LOL. This
charming and colorful design called for simple ditch quilting. As I’d
hoped, it made the colorful rectangles a bit more prominent. The
backing is two pieces of navy fabric. The navy grunge was nice, but
the print adds some punch.
The second top McGill sent is called… Circle of Stars. Isn’t it incredible?
Her piecing is meticulous and the quilt just sings! Can
you see the secondary pattern of circles made by the star points and
mini nine-patches? It’s like an optical illusion.
I quilted it simply with a vertical serpentine stitch, and it adds a wonderful texture. The backing is a wonderful blue two-toned floral.
I was honored to receive and be trusted with these two beauties and hope I did them justice. Thank you, McGill! They are being donated to the Salt Lake City Chapter of Quilts for Kids.”
WOW…Cathy and McGill, you certainly teamed up to make some amazing quilts. Thanks so much for sharing them with us and the kids who are served by Quilts for Kids. Amazing!!
