Lisa sent in this quilt for custom quilting and I was in love as soon as I laid eyes on it. The pattern was a block of the month from Crabapple Hill Studios. Lisa executed it with fantastic workmanship and it was a pleasure to quilt.
I wanted to keep the quilting simple so as not to take over the design. My goal was to make the globes pop and bring the 9 patch blocks to life.
Behind the globes, I freehanded a meander fill and used a point to point pattern in the triangles to give the block sort of a framed look.
I chose a snowflake quilting design for the 9 patch blocks to kind of tie everything together since there were some snowflakes in the fabric too.
There wasn’t a traditional border, but there were partial blocks all the way around the quilt and it made sense to use it as a border. The swirls really brought a fun and playful element to the quilt.
I had so much fun quilting this one!
