With this quilt I made myself step outside of my box. I love the look of straight line with a curved element. So I went for it every box had a series of Straight Lines and Curved Lines.
For this box - a circle template and a straight edge template with 1/4 marks.
These Big Boxes were so much fun. All of them contained an X across the whole box then lines leading to other lines and circles throughout.
Every box was different.
This green box is a case study for me. I love that the line continues in a different direction, it really peaks my interest to experiment with this look some more.
So keep your …

Here it is, fresh and ready to be quilted, but how?
A friend of mine pieced this quilt together. She is entering it into the local quilt show, Heirlooms XVI QUILT Show along with many of her other beauties. When she got in touch with me to see if I could quilt it, I jumped on it. First of all I have always wanted to quilt quilts that are exhibited in quilt shows. Second it has been at least 6 months since I have quilted anything other than play around quilt sandwiches, due to all of our renovating. There was a catch, I had 11 days to complete it. Also I wanted it to be AMAZING. She said quilt it how ever you want and I thought YES!!! Ready.. Set.. Go...
I recently volunteered to quilt this quilt.
This was not just any charity quilt this was a quilt with a story.
I hope the story is accurate but if it isn't please add to the story in the comments below.
This quilt was made by Diane Eaton for her family it's an Irish Chain. Our Longarm guild quilted five small quilts for her grandchildren and this is one of four queen size quilt tops she made for her daughters.Once she had piecedthese quilt tops together, she passed on and never had the chance to quilt them. She had a wonderful friend in the quilting community that has helped complete these quilts for her family. This person is Kathy Garringer if you live anywhere near NWA you know her. She fills the room with brightness. She is a person I look up to, a teacher, a giver, and is envolved in every quilting group I can think of. She gives her time to middle school kids and shares her love of quilting with them and everyone she crosses.
