January 15, 2020 – Amish with a Twist

  

  

  

This beautiful Amish with a Twist quilt is 93×96″ and will look great covering a bed. It was custom quilted with black thread in the black background and colorful variegated thread in all other areas (including the back). The center star was stitched with the same flower block used in each of the pieced blocks. Other parts of the center star incorporated cross hatch, echo stitching, and the same round flower used in the smaller squares of the corners. The corners were stitched with a round flower or a leaf design in 9-patch sections with a larger flower in alternating blocks. Each pieced block was stitched with a flower and leaves block and the surrounding triangles were outlined. The black background was stitched with a four-leaf design. The inner border was stitched with a candy ribbon design; the piano key borders with a flower design; and the outer borders with a round flower in the corners and a feathered leaf in the sides.

 

October 16, 2019 – Cheerful Stripes and Lattice

Although one of the simpler patterns, quilts using strip sets oftentimes take on a unique personality. Our customer pieced this quilt with the strips going in a vertical direction rather than the typical horizontal direction. It was stitched with off-white thread using a traditional, clam shell design. This quilt will make a beautiful table topper or covering for a daybed.

 

 

September 12, 2019 – Stack and Whack

This vibrant stack and whack quilt was stitched using light green thread. It was custom quilted with a design in each eight-pointed star surrounded by a meandering stitch (black thread) and a stitch-in-the ditch around the star and outline of the block. An alternating circle design was used in each of the three-layered sashings with an individual design in each corner. The outer borders were stitched with a leaf design very similar to the leaves in the design of the fabric.
