Elizabeth's Quilt

Elizabeth is my friend from Simple Simon & Co

She usually just drops off her quilts, and says "I trust you, do what you want".  Which makes me a little nervous.  It really puts the pressure on to be awesome!  

I decided to go all out.  Full modern free-style quilting. She hasn't even seen this yet.  I hope she likes it.

Quilting for Maureen

Every time Maureen sends me a new quilt, I am blown away with how talented she is.  And, this Arrow quilt was no exception. 

I told her I wanted to do something cool.  She has a  lot of contrasting colors in this, and I wanted the quilt to stay true to her designs. Really make the arrows and dark colors pop. 

So I changed the thread color a few times and did different quilting in every area.  It took me forever!  But I would say it was worth it. 

I really want to make one now!  Maureen is such an inspiration and I love all of her work.
