Sara's Stripe Quilt

Sara brought me this colorful stripy quilt she made for her son. I love the impact and the simplicity!

She requested that I quilt bugs and loops all over which was so fun to quilt! Great choice Sara!

Here is another look at the quilt and the bugs flying all over.

Sara made a bedspread and a pillow sham.  Here is how it looked on the back of the pillow sham.

I used a squiggly line to define the piecing. This is a cheerful and cost effective way to get the effect of stitch in the ditch. Below is another look at the quilt up close. 

The back of the quilt was cuddly minky fabric. Many customers ask me if quilting minky is a problem. I have no trouble with it. I recently did a quilt with a minky back that had no batting inside. This one had batting inside. Both ways work just fine. It is all about warmth. 

 It was so fun to quilt your quilt Sara. Thank you for asking me to do it!
