    This is a customer quilt I just finished quilting. I thought you might like to see the process that we went through.

    I just took an on-line class called "Quilt Whisperer". One of the things that we learned to do is to break down the quilt into it's components. Most of these ideas came from the teacher, but I re-drew them, added some others, and gave the customer some choices.

    This also proves (I HOPE!) that I CAN quilt better than I draw!

    More pictures on my blog!

    What a beautiful quilt job! And I just love the softness of the fabrics as some 30's fabrics are so loud. The fan block is a great block to show off those fabs with! She will be so pleased with it! :thumbup: :thumbup:
