I started on this a couple of nights ago. We are so busy with summer work and all things yard and garden, I have not even been in my studio for about a month!
My client is very talented with her needle. Her embroidery is perfect.
After quilting all the designs, I decided to put a simple crosshatch in the background of each "block."
I still have not decided what I will do in the outer borders, I do know that I will change thread in the brown border. I have to come up with an idea that will work with that flange in the white border.
Just finished this graduation quilt for my sister-in-law. She made it for her grandson.
I used black thread to do all the ditching, but am not a fan of dark thread on lighter colors. However, the ditching went pretty well, so I decided to just use black on the whole quilt. Most of the quilting is in the darker fabrics, and I tried to limit it in the yellow and light grey fabrics.
Since this is for a male, I am decided I liked the crisp look of the crosshatching for all the sashing and it will link up vertically and horizontally.
