I very much admire the quilting of the likes of Cindy Needham, Diane Gaudynski and Harriet Hargrave and wanted to create a quilt that was more densely quilted like those made by these three talented quilters. So the Anna quilt is very heavily quilted. This is my first quilt that has been quilted to this extent and I LOVE the appearance. Unfortunately it is difficult to photograph in such a way that the quilting is shown to its best advantage. To compensate I've taken several pictures. So here we go!
The quilting is a little clearer here!
I am really pleased with the look of the quilting in the elongated hexagon border. It is a combination of feathers on the outside rows and figure 8s on the center row. The effect is very pretty, especially from the back!
This is the quilting plan for the elongated hexagons
The border quilting with dragonflies, meander quilting and straight(ish) lines!
So there you have it - Anne H's Anna H quilt! Now I'll make the binding for the quilt so Mom can finish it!
The reason that the binding isn't made just yet is that I decided to work on the Cherry Blossom Quilt Pattern and I am pleased to say it is almost done. A couple of last minutes checks and amendments and it will be posted tomorrow! I hope you like the pattern and if you make your own Cherry Blossom Quilt, l would love to see it!
I've been working on another quilt which I've not yet shared with you but it is coming soon. It is a scrap quilt that was inspired by an antique quilt. It is a fast, simple quilt but it has an interesting little border that I will remain a secret for the time being! For now, here is a sneak peak of my quilt that I call Brick Bungalow!
And the good news is that there will be another free pattern for this one so stay tuned!
For now I'll leave you will some pictures from the garden.
