Basket quilt finish!
Here’s the quilt that I quilted this week… I tried a new motif in the border using a floral I found on FB called “Alfresco”. Did some shadow quilting
to fill in the empty spaces so the quilting would be balanced from the center to the outer border. These blocks were made for me in “Quilt Dreams” online bee
on flickr 4 years ago… Decided to dust the top off and get it quilted! Here’s a close up on the border and a couple of the baskets. I like the effects of the scallops.
This is one of my favorites, because it’s a cat! LOL! You can also see a close-up on the rouched flowers that I added to the applique. I enjoy this effect…
I love these all! They were made by Spiced Coffee, Jgmehlin, Nanotchka, Boutiquenutmegdesigns, HartHill, and myself.
I mailed out the fabrics and theme when it was my “month” to pick. I had a kit that pulled out and sent to the members of the bee.
They each made me 2 blocks and sent them back. It was fun to figure out how to put them all together as some were set on-point. I added some applique and ‘voila!
And last but not least, my photobombing kitty had to make an appearance!He definitely approves! Thanks for stopping by!
