Covey of Witches

Ann brought me this adorable witches quilt.  She does beautiful work, she even matched the plaid in the piecing on the witches hats.  
 I quilted swirls in the background and did lots of stitch in the ditch.

Water Colored Baby Quilt

Barbara brought me this cute baby quilt.  She said that she wanted it to look like water. 
 I did water meander in the center section and quilted waves on the border.

Floral Cube

Renate made this cool top out of a bunch of fabric that she had left over from a different quilt.  They are all florals.  She did an amazing job at sorting the fabrics into dark, medium and light.  You can really see the 3D effect of the cube, even with the busy floral prints.  I had an absolute blast quilting this quilt after I decided what I was going to do.  
I did A LOT of gridwork in the background of the quilt.  I have fun thinking up different ways that I could use my crosshatching template to change the background as I worked my way around the quilt.

 When you see it in person it gives the cube motion.  It makes it look like it is coming towards you.   Renate does beautiful piecing.  I love the ribbon border that she did.   I used Fil-Tec Glide thread through out the quilt so it has a shine to it.  I love their gold because it give you a slightly metallic look without the headache of using metallic thread

I like the way the back ended up looking with the color change.  I matched the bottom and top thread.  The ribbon even shows up since it was done with the gold.  

Thanks for letting me work on the quilt, Renate!  I really did have fun quilting it and I love the way it turned out!
