This is Eileen's quilt. I have to admit that when she passed this quilt to me I was shaking a little. I have a top just like this one, and had not yet figured out how to quilt my own. All I could see when I look at it was a sea of white, and lots of odd shapes.
As a general rule Eileen would prefer something other than feathers on her quilts, I knew it needed something special in those snowball blocks. Slowly the ideas started coming, and after I developed a plan I really enjoyed the quilting process.
So Fine! thread, Quilter's Dream Blend batting. Eileen's subtle backing fabric really shows off the quilting.
Her are a few shots of some of the shopping I did at the Kick Ass Country Store Birthday Sale. I am just a sucker for batiks on sale! Some for fun, some to match a project I might want to make bigger. And a new book and some stencils for inspiration.
