JoAnne's Star Quit is beautiful!

JoAnn is a new customer for us.  Welcome!  I wish I knew who to thank for the referral.  Hello??? Are you out there?  Let me know...In the meantime,  here is her quilt:

The quilting in the solid white squares mimicked her piecing

Lots of quilting!

Here, you can see the quilting detail in her sawtooth border

These pictures were all taken on the frame, in the studio.  This way, we can control the lighting and get just the shots we want.

Some fab quilts to feature!!

Somewhere between Dragon boat racing (more to come) and the grand (soft) opening of the Cartwright House B@B, some beautiful quilts were completed.  The first to show you is Linda E.'s giant Dahlia.  Really, it is spectacular.  It was photographed in the Victoria Suite:

On a King Size Bed with a TALL mattress!

Wool Batting shows the quilting in a grand style!

The center of the Dahlia.  Each section is quilted separately.  This project was made easier because of Linda's perfect piecing.  Johnny and I tag teamed on this quilt, as it was quite involved!!
