    A few weeks ago, I asked for recommendations on how to quilt this miniature: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-149885-1.htm

    Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. I ended up outlining the striped bars with stitch in the ditch and and securing across the bars every three to five (depending on how many were in each row/column).

    For the black sashing, I chose a Lead Day design that could be easily modified for the long spaces.

    I'm very pleased with the way this turned out and I think the swap recipient likes it as well. It was hard to give up.

    Cheers, K

    What a neat pattern never saw that one before just got off Henry Glass site at least I think that was the name and they have many free patterns for minatures. Your work is great thanks for sharing all sides of it too.

    The pattern is an adaptation of a free one from Hoffman - called California Rain - for a full sized quilt: http://www.hoffmanfabrics.com/conten...sp?ImageID=458

    This is so contemporary! I LOVE IT! That color scheme is one of my favorites! Can't go wrong with blacks and blues!

    Thanks - the swap was organized by the Triangle Modern Quilt Guild. It has taken me awhile to figure out what a "modern" quilt is - when I saw the pattern, I knew I was on the right track and then built the colors around my swap partner's preferences.

    Cheers, K
