Jacqueline’s Sunny Days and Starry Nights

??????????

This beautifully pieced quilt top was custom quilted with a design called Barbra’s Feathers from One Song Needle Arts (Donna Klienke) in the area surrounding the stars.   The stars are quilted with a custom designed 8 pointed scrolled filigree.  There is extensive stitch-in-the-ditch throughout the quilt.

The resulting quilt looks wonderful!

Jacqueline’s Trail Blaze

??????????

Trail Blaze was custom quilted for Jacqueline with a rope pattern, custom designed for the basket weave sections.  The light salmon coloured background is densely quilted with a cobblestone pattern by Anne Bright.  The inner border is quilted with a leaf sashing which I designed for this quilt.

The outside borders have a maple leaf pattern which I designed in Adobe Illustrator.  I picked a leaf from the tree, scanned it, traced it in AI and added veins to the centre of the leaf.  Then I copied the leaf to make it into a block which I used in a point to point manner, This was the first design I made with Adobe Illustrator, so the learning curve was exceedingly steep.  However, I was extremely satisfied with the resulting design.

All of the quilting designs complement the piecing well.

This butterfly sampler was custom quilted with a variety of butterfly-themed designs. The thread is Glide, a shiny trilobal polyester, which gives a bit of sparkle to the quilt.

The border design is Acanthus Butterfly by Donna Kleinke of One Song Needle Arts.
