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.

Holy moley, Ami! Your quilting is BEYOND fantastic! I don't know how you come up with the designs for the background filler stuff, but it is AMAZING.

Your quilting perfectly compliments Kathi's awesome piecing. You've helped create a true heirloom quilt. I hope that Kathi mentions you as the quilter on the label.
