Jackie brought me this top to quilt for her.  Don’t you love the seahorse fabric?  To give you an idea of the scale of the printed design, this is a baby quilt!  It will be a gift for a very lucky little boy.

Jackie said she’s relatively new to quilting.  Even as a beginner, she has a natural instinct for fabric placements.  Look how the directional seahorse print is pieced so the quilt has a clear top and bottom.  I sometimes make a very conscious decision to avoid directional fabrics so I don’t have to worry about how I piece my blocks.  Jackie did an excellent job keeping track of where her fabrics went!

We picked a pantograph for the quilting design that would provide lots of texture while being relatively gender-neutral.  Wisteria incorporates leaves with more abstract geometric shapes like swirls and hooks so it fit the bill perfectly.  I love how the quilting drifts across the quilt.  It moves the eye across the quilt with the patchwork color changes.

I used a medium grey thread to quilt the top – the colors range from white to navy, so it was important to pick something that worked across all values.

 

Congratulations to the new baby and his parents!
