I always LOVE getting a quilt back from the quilter. Seeing that transformation of my creation into a finished, quilted state is always a magical moment for me. I got my blended quilt back yesterday and I'm just delighted with the results.
The pictures, of course, do not do it justice. My quilter outlined each star and did a little loop-de-loop pattern inside each alternate block - most of which were a solid square, but some were 4-patches. In the pieced border, she did a serpentine crosshatch through all the patches - which were mostly small 3-1/2" squares, with some half-square triangles and some 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" rectangles in the mix.
