My friend, Shari, from New Jersey, made this amazingly beautiful Sew Kind of Wonderful sampler.
You can find the pattern, Curve It Up, here.
Shari used a Cotton & Steel line of fabrics.
I tell you what - it was SO much fun quilting this quilt!
I quilted a soft swirl in the white background areas.
This allows Shari's blocks to "float".
I love floating blocks!
Mmmmm - so much motion!
I have the Sidekick ruler, created by the nice folks at Sew Kind of Wonderful, which I finally got to use.
A curvy Churn Dash block - my favorite traditional block.
Just a few straight lines....
Concentric circles in the circle block.
I love how Cotton & Steel's designers write a little message on their selvage edges.
This is Shari's backing:
And.....here's my sampler!
I know - one day I'll have more to show, but for now I just stare at these humble beginnings....
A sweet gift from Shari for me.
Quilter's don't usually get quilted gifts, but Shari outdid herself.
I love my table runner.
Thank you so much, sweet lady.
