Linda's Ripple Quilt

Ripple made by Linda D

 Not for the faint of heart, all of the blocks are on bias.
Linda did an amazing job of keeping her piecing flat and square! 
With perfectly matched intersections. Well done Linda!!!

We choose a repeating quilting design that would work well in the blocks,
another great design that works really well for a custom e2e.
Celtic Cross by Jessica Schick, designer and owner of Digi-Tech 

 Batting is Quilter's Dream Machine
Thread is an Omni by Superior Thread 
Colonial Gray which matched perfectly with Linda's background fabric

I was surprised to learn from Linda that her backing fabric was not from the same collection of fabric. The colors were absolutely a perfect match! Love how Linda pieced the backing with one narrow strip of a solid. From the perspective of a longarmer, very much appreciated because it reduced the bulk when I lined up the center seam of the quilt top with the backing. Yea! Great fabrics and color choices by Linda. 

Linda made Ripple in one of Kelly's workshops at HRQ, plus she is finishing up Snack Time,   Kelly's most recent workshop. An encore of Snack Time workshop is coming up on March 20th plus Kelly is planing a BOM with Toes in the Sand. Lots of fun to be had at Honey Run Quilters! Kelly is coming by the studio today with one of her own quilts, can't wait to see what she brings in! I have the best customers! Thank you Linda! 

I am off to finish the quilting on Beckie's gorgeous French Braid. 
Enjoy your Leap Day! We have an extra day to play!
Tot ziens, Jo
