Ev's last quilt...

It was a panel quilt for a little girl in her family.  She wanted me to do something better than a panto or overall so I tried to fill in the blanks with what I thought it needed.  This definitely isn't my strong suit but here it is...


Wind in the sky?  Wavy rainbow, changed threads for every color...and my ribbons in the red border are really getting better....


And water/waves....more ribbons.  I did them from all four directions and didn't have to rotate the quilt.  That's a first...Just loops in the outside border since it all blended in....you wouldn't be able to see it.  I guess I could have done piano keys or something linear, but that would involve me working with rulers and I haven't tried that yet with my new machine.


Anyhow, that was the last of my customer quilts so I'm free to work on my own stuff.  I'm going sewing today with Sharon and I've got a new project to work on.  Why I don't finish something I'm already 90% done with is beyond me, but whatever....right??  Happy quilting to you...

Love the variety! I have a Noah's Ark panel that is on the short list to make. Perhaps I will plagiarize your designs!

I too had started this panel, I sewed around the animals, it got set aside for the holidays, I now have a new inspiration to start back in. Thanks I really like your chosen patterns.
