Shirley's quilt

Shirley brought me a 63 x 63 stack and whack quilt that she had done in fall colors.

I filled in the background with stippling.

I quilted a leafy swirl pattern on the sashing.

Shirley picked a nice orange thread for the pinwheels, but after I quilted the motif once around, I could see that it wasn't enough. There needed to be more quilting on the pinwheels so they would lay properly and fit in with the rest of the quilting. So I echoed the design in brown. It is much easier to see the quilting from the back.
Thanks Shirley!


  1. Lovely quilt and quilting!
