I finished up this quilt last week and dropped it off to the owner yesterday. This was the first quilt she has EVER made, can you believe it?! This is a variation on my Jolly Holly quilt and she made it last year when I taught the class at A Touch of Thread.
I took over my sampler quilt (I’ll share more about this next week) and she picked out the designs she wanted. She decided she wanted snowflakes in the outer border, vines in the inner border, overall meandering in the body of the quilt, and stitch-in-the-ditch around the snowflakes with tight meandering in the white background.
A few weeks ago I started working at A Touch of Thread one day a week to help out and have had the opportunity to “test drive” the Ellisimo by Baby Lock. Wow! All I can say is now I know how people feel who drive cadillacs … LOL 🙂 Anyways, I decided to make a matching pillowcase to go with this quilt and try out machine embroidery – something I’ve never tried. It was a lot of fun and a nice surprise for Rose.
Thanks Rose for letting me quilt your quilt!
