Modern Appliqué

I really enjoyed quilting this striking quilt for Leanne.  The fabrics and textures were modern and refreshing, and it is going to be a wall hanging. 

I quilted two background fillers, double loops with a diagonal stripe of a small zig zag, which I call “maze”.  The effect is subtle, but I like the contrast and interest it creates.  I also feel the Windmill flowers in the border really suit the feel of the quilt.

  2. Wow! How refreshing...both the quilting designs that you chose as well as the quilt! So different! I think we will be seeing lots of these ideas from other quilters who admire your work.

  3. I really like how you used the Maze design across the quilt and across the different background fabrics.I wish I could think out of the box like that.
    Mary is right ....I know I'll be sketching out your Windmill flowers on paper later :)
