Sherry used the Highway 10 Designs Home Quarter pattern
for the basis of this quilt and took it up a notch by adding an applique panel. My last two posts also contained Home Quarter quilts, and it still amazes me how much fabric choices change the look of a pattern.
Sherry sent a note along with the quilt suggesting an all over stipple for the quilting design and an outline around the applique. I know Sherry quite well and I know that she prefers threads that blend, so I suggested treating the border and panel differently than the body of the quilt so I could use two different threads.
Sherry liked my suggestion of a bead board design in the borders and behind the applique with a medium stipple in the quilt body. I love how it turned out. It was fun to stipple a large part of the quilt as I don't get to do that often.
I love when quilters take a pattern and add their own twist to it. Home Quarter is a fat quarter friendly pattern and is available as a pdf download or in paper format.
