Renee says it took her a couple of years worth of Shop Hop shopping to find the fabrics for this cute applique quilt made from a Piece of Cake pattern. She did such a good job on all the applique and wanted custom quilting to make it shine. I did another quilt for her a while back - another holiday quilt which is timely now:
It was hard to decide what thread to use on the green blocks. Any green just blended in and made the quilting invisible so I ended up using a gold colored Glide thread which shows up just enough.
This is Patty's pretty and HUGE block of the month quilt:
Patty is a pro - these blocks are all well pieced.
When I finished the quilting I was horrified to find several pleats on the back behind the bottom piano key border. I have had few problems with pleats and pinches on the back since I got my Innova so this did not make me happy! I had to spend an hour ripping and re-quilting and now all is well.
