Kate's quilt....

A Montana customer of mine, Kate, made this beautiful 
quilt for her mom.
The pattern is a free layer cake quilt pattern designed by April Rosenthal, called, "Moda Love".....found here.

I quilted an all over floral, paisley, feathery design. 

 I absolutely love this backing fabric.

This is the center star.  
Kate placed the colored fabrics all around this center.

This is probably my favorite print in the quilt - but, 
they're all fabulous!

Kate chose the perfect binding - a black & grey gingham.

This is Kate's second quilt - I tell you what.....she already has some serious skills!

She packed up this quilt along with her adorable little twins and hauled a horse trailer all the way to California so she could deliver this quilt (and the horse trailer) to her mom.  
That's love.....
Thank you, Kate, for trusting me with this beautiful quilt.  
I'm sure we'll be seeing many more quilts in your future.


  1. That is a simply beautiful quilt, she certainly knows how to put her prints and colors together in an amazing way. I agree that checked board is perfect :)
    Happy Quilting!
    Connie :)

  2. I love your free-hand quilting - so much fun to look at! And I like the quilt, too. Great gift to present in person :)

  3. Kate did a beautiful job on this quilt, and you did a lovely job on the quilting! I'm going to have to look up that layer cake pattern: it sure does make a pretty quilt! Hugs, H
