Heather's solids.....and Fig Tree BOM...

Heather is from Washington and sent me 2 quilts to quilt.
This first one is an amazing star/log cabin king size quilt.
I'm starting to see more and more solid color quilts. 
There are so many beautiful solid pieces out there - more than ever before.
Heather's quilt is one of the most beautiful solid fabrics quilts I have ever seen.....ever!
It was a block of the month.
I decided to quilt an all-over swirl - I didn't want to detract from the piecing and gorgeous design.
I quilted ric-rac in the first inner border, orange peel in the pieced border, straight lines for the outer border and fan swirls in the outer corners.
The backing is bicycles - absolutely darling!
Heather also sent me this Fig Tree block of the month. 
I'm starting to see quite a few of these and it's a darling quilt.
I love the dark blue/dot binding. 
Frames it nicely.
She wanted an all-over design in the center and different borders - I love playing with the borders!
I quilted a ribbon and some loops in the blue dot border and a pretty echoed paisley in the outer border.
Very nice job on both of these quilts, Heather.
Thank you for letting me add my little bit to them.
I wonder if these are Christmas gifts???

  2. The star / log cabin is AMAZING!!

  3. Such beautiful work! What amazing quilts! Hmmmm, yes, wonder who they are for?

  4. WOW! Those are wonderful!! I still have all of my blocks for the fig tree quilt sitting in their packages. Maybe I should get sewing, eh? :)

  5. These are some of the most gorgeous quilts I have ever seen! I can only HOPE to be able to do work like that some day. Wow, just amazing, and your quilting is the perfect final touch.

  6. Solids do make for some really nice quilts, and they highlight the quilting so well. Great job on both of these! I especially like your border treatment in the plum of the first quilt :)

  7. Both quilts are beautiful! And your quilting was perfect! ::love::

  8. I've been back three times to look at that star/log cabin quilt. Lol. It's so pretty. Kathy, do you know what BOM it was? Or any more info on it?

  9. Wow- gorgeous! I would also love to know which BOM the star/log cabin quilt is if anyone knows:)

    1. It's "Amish With a Twist, II". Keepsake Quilting still has some kits. It really is a beauty!
