Next up on my table will be a quilt for applique artist, Jill Rixman. This is a pretty little quilt and her applique work is stunning. See for yourself:
I will use black thread in the black and green thread in the green. Since she is an applique pattern designer, the idea of this quilt is to sell her patterns. The star of the show needs to be her applique work, if you get my drift… LOL!
That means no special thread and no contrast in the quilting. I will use some cool texture quilting and motifs to complement her work instead. This is actually challenging for me because I love to have the quilting be the star of the show! Thus said, an experienced quilter needs to know when to subordinate the quilting lines so the focus is either on the applique, the piecing or the overall quilt design.
But the quilting doesn’t have to be boring either. Let’s see how this one turns out…. keep watching!!
