My Quatrefoil quilt is back from the quilter already! Take a look:
Because of all the straight lines and angles in this quilt, I had already decided on “something with loops and swirls” for a quilting motif. After consulting with longarmer Sherry Wadley, we went with “Retro Heart,” an edge-to-edge pattern by Anne Bright Designs. I just love how it turned out!
Of course Coco decided to make an impromptu inspection, as she is wont to do:
Here’s a look at the whole quilt:
After trimming, it now measures 57″ x 71″ — a good size for a throw.
I made a simple pieced back using some of the leftovers from Corey Yoder’s “Holliberry” layer cake (10″ squares) and a larger piece of the grey floral:
That light fabric at the top is something I pulled from my stash, and it just happens to have loops and swirls on it, too:
I’ve decided to name this quilt ‘Tis the Season. That pretty much covers Christmas, the holidays, and winter, doesn’t it?
If I don’t dilly-dally, I can get it bound and labeled before the end of the year.
On the other hand . . . wouldn’t it be great to start 2021 with a finish?
Always amazing how the quilting changes a quilt and usually in a good way. You are so fortunate to have a quilt inspector.
Your quilt is gorgeous! I love the colors and the back. The quilting is perfect. Hugs,
Your quilt is beautiful! What a wonderful last finish of 2020 or first finish of 2021!
The quilting is perfect. It reminds me of swirly Christmas candies wrapped in cellophane and twisted at the ends – and how appropriate is that? Is the binding the “final” reveal??
Beautiful! Love the pattern and the fabric!!
Beautiful! I love the colors and quilt pattern. I think it looks holidayish but not limited to just
Christmas time, but the whole winter season. Great job Dawn!!! Happy New Year!
