So now I want to brag on my sister just a little bit. She really was exceptionally creative with her quilting; she put a lot of thought into the quilting of the quilt. Rather than try to tell you about it in my words, I'll just let these pictures of her quilts speak about it.
First up this is a little baby quilt. If you click to enlarge you'll see the pattern of flowers, leaves, and stems quilted in red and green.
Here's the quilt she did for the QBFF paint chip challenge back in 2011.
I currently have this one hanging in my kitchen nook. I love looking at it.
The small sections quilted with the rainbow variegated thread are a great touch.
The center section is quilted with metallic thread. This is not easy to do. It requires the right needle in your machine and adjustments to the tension to keep the thread from breaking.
This next one is her original design. She had created a pattern for it and sold it at a quilt shop near her home. In her piles of unfinished quilts was the beginning of another one of these.
I am fairly sure the following is also an original design. In addition to this finished table topper, you'll see below three unquilted tops and the beginnings of two more.
