My local guild, the Gold Bug Quilters, is having their once-every-two-year quilt show. I entered 2 of my own quilts, plus this one I quilted and is owned by my friend, Barb. It is called , “Sunrise, Sunset” and you may see the front of the quilt here and here on my Flickr page.
The following pictures are of the back of the quilt, which showed up nicely in the light as I was sewing on the show label this morning:
and some detail quilting:
and one more picture:
All of the quilt is freehand, except for a portion of a lovely flower stencil by Pat Campbell you can find here. I love that flower and can now do it from memory.
Friday night, I’m treating Barb to dinner and the quilt preview show! I’m glad she can come with me. Barb is a talented quilt piecer and designer, we have collaborated on many quilts together- and some in the future!
This show is non judged, by the way. I’m not sure how many quilts that I’ve worked on will be in this particular show, my guesstimate is a dozen or so. I will take pictures of all the quilts on display that I like and share them with you. Regards, Carla
Thank you, Carla, for sharing the back of this quilt so your beautiful freehand quilting can be enjoyed again. I love the front as well, but it is like a second quilt on the back. Your work is from your heart and sings its own song.
Yum, yum, yum!
You frickin’ rock when it comes to free motion quilting!!!!!
that is just gorgeous!!! I just love your work Carla!!
So pretty! The backing fabric looks like a rainbow. I love the mix of freemotion flowers, feathers, dragonflies, and other lovelies.
Gorgeous quilting Carla. Love the backing fabric too.
What beautiful work, Carla! Thank you for showing it to us.

Thank you, Fulvia, for stopping by! I went to your site and enjoyed your gallery! My favorite piece is “Heartland.” I enjoyed the galleries and find your work intriguing and thought provoking. Regards, Carla
I sure was lucky the day I met you Carla!! ;-}
Wow, Carla, that’s amazing!
It’s too bad it’s not a judged show, I’m sure it would be adorned with ribbons! Beautiful!
scrumptious! that’s really inventive quilting!
I love the interesting design mixtures…. really all goes so well together with gentle surprises, love it:)
