Anita's quilts and quilting

A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.

Another for Gordon

This quilt had me standing and staring for a couple of days.  There is lots of movement in the stack and whack fabric design.

I thought it would be good to play up that motion with a stitch design that also had lots of movement.  I took a photo while it was dark so the design would show up well.  It really shows well if you click the photo.

Choosing a thread color was slightly difficult.  I was tempted to use a bright red color because of all the hot colors in the fabric.  In the end I used a green thread that should have viewers wanting a closer look.  Even though this is a freehand all over design I would call it medium custom because of its density.  Here is a look in full light.

I did piano key lines on the outside border and a loop design on the inside border. These formed a stopping point for the eyes with all the motion of the center area.

Here is a look at the back.  Nothing shows up but I really like the fabric.

Gordon did a very nice job making that top.  I was glad to be able to quilt it for him.
