Valerie's Star Quilt is Finished

Valerie requested a simple, overall quilting design for this project.  At first, I wasn't so sure an overall was the way to go.  So after careful consideration, we decided on an ivory thread.  This way, the lighter fabrics recede, and the star design is emphasized.  The feathers look great on the border as well.  It really is a custom look without the custom price tag.  Thanks Valerie!  This idea will probably work for a lot of quilts!

Valerie's Batik queen Size is finished!

We love working on Valerie's quilts.  This girl can sew!

An all over fern quilting design looked great!

King Tut thread by Superior really works well with Batik fabrics.  We can always find a variegated that blends with the colors in batik fabrics.  Plus, it's a heavier thread that can stand up to the stiffer hand of a batik.
