Sally’s Show Quilt

 

Sally finished this beautiful quilt while traveling all around Oregon and was hoping to get it quilted and entered in a show in Wyoming next week! It’s an original design and she used all Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Custom quilting in a couple of days is very challenging, luckily this quilt really spoke to me.  I did this all by computer, it took me a long time to find the perfect designs for the center and white blocks and I really love what I chose.  In the stars I used the point to point arc function, once you find the path to click around the points on the blocks you can stitch it out seamlessly.  The blue border compliments the arcs and star points.  The floral border was the biggest challenge.  I haven’t done a lot of borders using the computer.  Getting the corners and the border to fit and stitch along the top then move down to the bottom is tough, but then you take the quilt off the frame and turn it so you can do the sides.  Getting those to line up and stitch from the start and stop points is scary.  This one turned out perfectly, what a relief.  It’s on its way to Wyoming, I hope it is a show stopper!
