Half Rectangle Quilt

My Client brought me this beautiful blue and cream half rectangle quilt to quilt.  I had such a great time with it!  I do believe that it grew overnight though. I don't think I realized it was as big as it was, until I could never reach the bottom border... it became quite comical to roll it again... and STILL not see the last border!




The variety of blues was just wonderful. She did such a great job of laying them out!



And of course - you always want to see the back!!  Well - okay - I always do. I love texture on quilts and I think this is the best way to see it!


It was so fun to deliver this quilt as well. Both my client and her husband were just so tickled. That REALLY makes a persons' day!

What a beautiful quilt. I love the quilting you did. How do you get your curls in the borders so uniform, do you do any marking?

Your quilting is absolutely wonderful on this pretty quilt. I love how you gave it so much texture. I am saving pictures to put in my "inspiration" file. Great job!

Nice pattern, color and the quilting is great. All those feathers and they look so good paired with the other stitch. I see swirls and circles, too. You pulled out all the stoppers, didn't you. Great job. Thanks for sharing it.

Gorgeous quilting, Alycia! You took a nice simply pieced quilt and turned it into a fabulous quilt. Always happy to see the back - shows off the quilting. Thanks for sharing, and thanks for linking up to TGIFF.
