Kathi's Quilt

This is Kathi's awesome quilt! It has so much movement amazing colors. It has been most of my time outside my day job for the past couple of weeks but is finally done and ready to send home. There are lots of photos. The background is a dense fill with lots of different elements that adds lots of movement and interest. The background is quilted with black Omni and the rest of the quilt is monopoly by Superior threads. I wanted the beautiful piecing to take center stage and the quilting to be a nice compliment to that. Two layers of batting to give lots of loft so that the quilting will really pop.

No You Are Not Seeing Double

 These are two twin quilts for my friend Daisy. I just love the way the bargello is broken up with the strips of background fabric. I decided on a really nice fill for the background secions and just some diagonal lines across the bargello................and let me say that making perfect long diagonal lines on a longarm machine is not least for me. The fill is lovely and I will use it again as it was something new for me to try. There are lots of close ups:

Working On A Strippy Quilt

This is a beautiful strippy bargello quilt. I am working on the "fill" in the solid strips. It is a new to me type of fill and I really like how it is mixed up with the larger swirl/feather and the smaller peacock meander and pebbles. I really like the overall look of this.
