Lightening Quilt

This is all my own design front and back. I really got to play with the back so much so that I'm not sure which side I like better! A large Twin or Full size Quilt.

Dutch Darlings Quilt

This can be a super scrappy quilt or down played with a smaller color way. I decided to go all the way! Pattern by Cristy Fincher of Purple Daisies Quilting.  I was lucky enough to be a pattern tester for this one. It has turned edge applique. Mine finishes at 80"x80".

I did a dense stipple around the applique to help 'pop' even more. An outline 'in the ditch' around the patchwork flowers and a spiral in the background space.

Some in process photos:

Picking my colorway.
Marking my colorway so I don't forget.
I was extremely organized with this quilt.

A finished pieced tulip.
Applique done.
Borders, borders, and more borders.
If I didn't have a scrappy backing the quilt was going to be mad at me.
I just love that purple and green pairing.

Really tiny stippling.
and a short movie if you have never seen free motion quilting on a domestic (not longarm) machine.

Star Burst: Finished

Star Burst was a quilt I designed because I love purples and greens. I wanted it to be scrappy and I wanted some negative space to play with some free motion quilting.

Diamond Road: Finished

Diamond Road is all finished. I am so glad I embarked on this project. I don't usually do patterns so it was a nice challenge to do a mystery pattern with tiny pieces and blocks I had never done before. I learned some new techniques. This is a gorgeous quilt finishing at 90"x90" It really is hard to believe it is all done. Pattern from Cora's Quilts.

I chose a light quilting motif so that the piecing could continue to shine. I also wanted all those seams to be covered!
