Molly’s Quilt

I finished Molly’s quilt for her awhile back, but thought I would share the photos here, too.

This was a adorable garden theme quilt, designed by the mother/daughter team, Arlene and Melissa at The Quilt Company.  My friend, Molly Evangelisti pieced the quilt together, and as usual, her piecing skills are excellent!

The name of the pattern is Thyme to Water, and if you are interested in obtaining this pattern, just click on the link above. I knew that Molly wanted to enter this quilt in her guild show, so I did some nice quilting for her. Carla Note: Molly entered this quilt in the CA State Fair, where it earned a first place ribbon.

First, an overall view of the quilt on my table:

  1. I love the spring feel of this quilt! Beautiful work from both of you. Thank you for sharing a beautiful reminder warmer weather is on it’s way.

  2. Molly’s quilt is gorgeous, and your quilting is stunning. I’m new at making quilts, and I’ve been watching and looking at the quilting you do. Love your work Carla. I’m at the moment making a Triple Irish Chain, using greens and a very pretty floral, for my main block. I still have to do the border, which I’ll be doing this weekend. Thank you for the printouts you sent in emails, I’ll be doing some practicing too this weekend. Thank you for helping someone like me who is just learning about quilting quilts. Denise.

    • Denise, glad I could help. One day, you will pay it forward and help a newer quilter, I am sure. Have fun with the center of the Irish Chain pattern if you used a non-patterned fabric. Consider using a stencil in the space for practice. I like mixing freehand with more rigid designs on my quilts, it looks pleasing to the eye. Good luck! Carla

    • Hi Carla, Designing quilts is a skill that either comes naturally to a quilter- or it is a skill that one can learn. I do teach an online eClass on how to approach any quilt for the quilting process called “Quilt Whisperer.” I have a second class that teaches students how to design and plan quilts (and other projects) using a tablet and photoshop elements. Thank you for your lovely complement!

  4. I just love this quilt! Would Molly consider selling this quilt? I would be interested in talking to her about it. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Gisela, Thanks for stopping by.

      I am not sure if Molly would be willing to part with this quilt, she tends to keep the quilts that I do for her, especially the ones that earn ribbons. However, I can certainly drop her an email asking…
