OK, lets chat about the quilt that I am working on right now. I am almost finished with it actually, I just need to do a bit of fill in quilting and go back and finish the spots I didn't quite know what to quilt. Yahaira sent me a beautiful star quilt top. Each star was pieced with tiny half square triangles and she wanted the quilt to be quilted in a Welsh style. I LOVE Welsh quilting. In my opinion Welsh quilting is classic, but can also be so modern and unexpected. Gwen Marston has been influenced quite a bit by Welsh quilting...you can see it throughout many of her books. I adore Gwen Marston....but I bet you already know that.
OK, so after I got Yahaira's quilt top I sketched out a really crude idea as to what I wanted to do to it. I sent it to her with a another picture of a quilt that I am working on for my own delight (but I have fizzled since I have so very many other things to finish before we move).
So here it is this morning....I think it is so pretty resting there in the sunlight.
I did some fiddle head ferns around the half medallions.
The arced boarder was so fun to quilt.
I want to talk to you about thimbles soon too! I made some leather ones and I really like them.
