In the studio...

 
Linda brought in a few amazing quilts for me to work on this week -   I love the bold batiks anchored by the black sashing on this one.   We chose a pantograph pattern called Dazzle, and a fuchsia variegated thread by Aurifil.   
Better shot of the pantograph design Dazzle on the backing...
 The thread colour by Aurifil just sings on this top -  it melts right into the variety of colours, and then on the black sashing you see pops of the colour.  Love the colour choice!
This batik beauty was quilted with a looser overall design using leafs and swirls.
This design was fun to work on after a lot of dense quilting earlier on in the week.

 Tamara brought in this lovely batik quilt - Willow Stonehenge -The Pond pattern.   I quilted a long wavy grass texture in the darker areas, and a watery meander in and around the lily pads to represent the pond.  I used an incredible thread by Glide called Fool's Gold -  it is kind of a metallic army green and it really goes well with those brown and taupe batiks.   Need to order more! 
 I have learned that brown quilts are almost impossible to photograph!  I find it really hard to get the lighting right to show the quilting!

  1. All three designs look so nice, you are so good at this and not just quilting but also picking the right designs for the different prints. Hope to see more from you soon.
