Cross quilt for Julie
Hey there! My middle son is off at a sleepover and the volume of our home is so quiet. Ethan is the most quiet of the lot of children I have so his presence is really missed. Part of me does not like sleepovers at all. I like having my children around me. But I guess it helps them mature. So since we are in the mind set of low volume, lets look at a fairly low volume quilt.
I just finished quilting this great quilt for Julie. I always love to quilt Julie's quilts. She wanted me to do whatever I wanted to this quilt, but she wanted swirls. I have never met a swirl I didn't like, so swirl I did! I love how the undulation of the background quilting makes the crosses pop out to the fore.
I tired to only use swirls for this quilt, but I did feel it necessary to toss in a couple pebbles just for the heck of it.
Happy quilting folks!
