    A little geometric quilting designs

    This quilt has a block stripe look to it so to off-set that and soften it up some we quilted a pantograph called "dizzy" with a border called "cobblestone" we also did some SITD were appropriate.

    This quilt has Hobbs 80/20 batting and she wishes to bind it herself.

    Am I seeing right? You added the last border strip after the rest of the quilt was quilted? Huh... Now that gives my mind reason to pause and think.

    Absolutly beautiful work by the way. I love the bubbles.

    No, when I received the quilt top it was already completely pieced, I just quilted it.

    Ah, I get the question.

    The 3rd pic is of the front of the quilt, with a portion flipped over so you can see the quilting on the back (all that brown to the right in the pic is really the backing fabric, not the front border fabric).

    The quilting in the border makes it look like it has two border. I really like that you did that. It gives it so much more interest. Nicely done.
