Finished this quilt for Anne Hall!
It is her Fire Island Hosta, a Judy Niemeyer Pattern. Anne was finishing her training as a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor as I was quilting her quilt! It was kinda a fun coincidence! She has since finished her training and is a Certified Instructor! She will be awesome!
We met Anne 3 years ago when she came all the way from England to our event with Judy.
Judy, Anne, Roger and I, taken 3 years ago. Anne has since moved back to Canada and lives in BC.
Back to her quilt…
I approached this quilt in a whole new way, working from the Center out. Watch for a separate blog on this and why I did it. I love the ombré fabric for the spikeless leaves! Anne asked that the quilting accented the ombré, not distract from it. That request actually stumped me for a couple of days….hope what I decided fits her request….
Next I filled the white and black sawtooth with a simple fill. The stitching on the black did not show on any pictures I took.
The New York Beauty blocks are my favourite part!
Next to the New York Beauty….
Anne added her beautifully hand stitched appliqué in the corners! I embellished the appliqué with feathers….
One last picture, the back….
That’s it folks! Way too much fun….
