Yummy blue

I just finished quilting this big quilt for Annette.  She made the quilt for her lucky daughter.
It's a yummy blue - not as electric blue as in some of the photos.

I quilted it with blue and white So Fine thread and it has a white backing.  Annette requested blue thread on the back which is not my favorite for a white backing; it shows every start and stop.  It turned out looking okay but you notice I did not take a picture of the back!

As I lay the quilt on my machine to get it folded up it looked so pretty in the sun.


  1. Very pretty. Like how you handled around the stars and sashing. It is always great to look back at the quilt once it is off the frame and relaxing a bit...and you with it. Nice job

  2. So lovely! :)
    Greetings from Finland!
    Hugs, Ulla

  3. Lovely quilting.

    I can definitely recognize Annette's source of inspiration - Sharyn Craig's "Setting Solutions."

  4. That is a really beautiful quilt!!

  5. Both of you did a marvelous job. Beautiful quilt and colors and quilting!

  6. Just Gorgeous, I bet the back looks better than your critique... I'm as curious as a cat now....
    Thankyou Amanda
