Contacted us back at the end of April. Linda brings us a whack of quilts every spring to have quilted before she moves back East for the summer.
I had just under 4 weeks to get Linda's quilts done before she left; here's what we did.
This was one of my favorites.
Linda wanted the quilting kept simple so I echoed the chevrons,
Followed the diagonal lines in the green and did a ribbon through the red.
And traced the circles in the white and the dividing lines between the 'dolls'.
Linda made this beautiful Bargello quilt for her brother for his wedding.

The pattern is stunning on the backing.
She made these two for her grandsons.
One hockey themed,

And the other, puppies.

Wouldn't this quilt be striking in white and black?
|quilted with Mimosa|
I loooooove this next quilt. Love it, love it, love it.
I water stitched in all the background, leaving the trees to pop. The border I kept simple and piano keyed it.
This fun Asian Kimono quilt.
I did a large meander in the outer border around the butterflies. In the second border, I followed the lines in the fabric. Third border, I did a ribbon stitch,
In the quilt body, I water stitched in all the blue; including up in the kimono.
And in the black 'sleeves' and 'neck' of the kimono, I did a large wavy line on the inside edge to anchor it down.
Lastly, another Asian themed quilt.
I quilted Asian Clouds on the quilt except for the large landscaped blocks.
In those I did some echoing, meandering, waterstitching. Each block was quilted a bit different from the others.
I love how Linda did the backing for this one. She does not waste any fabric when she quilts.
Can't wait to see what Linda brings us when she comes back 'home' this fall!
