It has been a busy summer. Now that school is back in I should have more time for quilting. The quilts are building up and it is time to get to work. I have a new ruler foot and a few new rulers to play with. I plan on going into more detail on ruler work very soon.
I was able to get one quilt done over the summer. A customer sent me a Southwest Cowgirl Quilt the pattern is Turning Twenty. It was the biggest quilt that I have tackled 102 x 102. I had to pull my frame out to king size which is something I have been wanting to do for a long time and this quilt gave me the reason. Now I can make those quilts for my king size bed.
Here it is laying over the clothes line. What you are seeing is only half of the quilt.
Here is the back
I decided to go with what I like to call a cowboy feather and some straight lines that are like hills and valley that are found in New Mexico.
The border has diamonds with e's and l's
Here you can see how pretty all of the colors are together
I had fun with all of the swirly feathers and straight lines. This was a allover motif that I free hand quilted. This quilt made me go outside of the box from other quilts that I have quilted. It is always good to open your mind to new possibilities.
