This fabulous quilt was made by Melissa. Melissa told me that she made this quilt about 15 years ago and it's just been hanging out as a UFO, I'm super honored that after all that time she chose to bring her quilt to me for the machine quilting. Melissa told me that I could machine quilt this quilt however I wanted, just have fun with it. I'm sure that traditionally this quilt was supposed to have some echo quilting around all of the applique and then probably cross-hatching in the body of the quilt. Well, I decided to break all of the traditional rules with this one!
I had a lot of fun machine quilting this quilt. I machine quilted swirls and clams in the borders. I love the way those two designs play together. Both of those designs are taught in my book, Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting. I machine quilted a feather flower and another block design in the body, I love how this quilt turned out!
Thanks so much Melissa for letting me machine quilt this fun quilt!
