Saturday Morning Post ~ Sandy

Sandy's Diamond Girl
Quilting for Sandy on her diamond log cabin... this is the center of the quilt 
with this wonderful embroidered image made by Kathy Thomas

The entire quilt on my big worktable 
Rain was back the week I finished Sandy's quilt so it was back to indoor pix 

This pic with the quilt draped over my frame shows the fabric colors better.
Many lovely vintage Robin Pandolph fabrics!

Some close ups of the quilting, front and back...

Quilting design in the center field is from One Song Needle Arts
Sierra Peaks ~ a collection of diamond, half diamonds both vertically
and horizontally and a quarter motif. They worked well for these blocks
Pearls were added to the stop border & the outer border is a p2p triangle.

Quilted with a soft pink/peach Omni thread
on Quilter's Dream Machine batting

Our preference would have been wool batting, however, with light fabrics
wool can leave a shadow effect, especially with a dark backing fabric.
Even tho this quilt has a light backing, the seam allowances were still obvious.
I am having the same issue with another quilt on my frame right now.

Thank you Sandy!

Sandy has her quilt finished earlier this month. This week has been a challenge with a customer showing up with five large quilts when last I heard, she was not able to come to Chico this month. Busy, busy busy!

Enjoy your National/International Quilting Day/Weekend/Week

 Tot ziens, Jo
