One of our local quilt shops did Stonehenge Meets Jamestown as their Saturday Sampler this past year. Now those quilts are starting to roll across my long arm frame. Sandy and Sheryl each made the brighter version of this quilt. They called me last fall to secure quilting spots for February of this year. Then they frantically worked to complete their quilt tops for the reservation dates. This pattern is designed by Patti Carey; to see more of Patti’s designs click here. You can also search for specific patterns once you are in her blog. In fact, one of my own quilts made it to Patti’s blog, see it here, scroll to the bottom once you are in the link!
So back to the quilts – when the girls called for reservations they loved the quilting on the shop samples, I explained that I had not quilted those. But they wanted me to quilt them. I contact Patti Carey, who then put me in contact with her long arm quilter, who happens to be in Canada. Not a lot of help for us down here in TX. I contacted the quilter, Sandra Reed, who was very kind and sent me a photo of the poster of one of the quilts, but had turned the 2 quilts around for Patty very quickly and she did not have photos of the quilting. (And the samples had already been shipped back to Northcott so I was unable to photograph them myself. ) If you would like to see some of Sandra’s work click here. Well, no problems, eventually another call came in for a reservation and this savvy piecer had taken several photos of the quilting.
While this quilting is similar to Sandra’s original quilting, I did feel the need to switch it up a little bit, not much though because her quilting was fabulous!
Here are a few photos I took to share with you. Click on the photo to see a larger version!
I have at least 2 more of these quilts coming up this year on the reservation list! I know at least one of them is done in earth tones and it is scrumptious!
