It's All In The Quilting



This past summer I finished piecing my Coastal Lily quilt.
It has been at the quilters waiting it's turn...
however, I did say it was a "no rush" order.
Saturday my LAQ delivered a "secret assignment" 
back to me so I could bind it and get it where it needs to go...
and she told me she was going to start on Coastal Lily.

Last night she sent me these pictures...


 I love how quilting make a quilt come to life.


I am thrilled with what she is doing!


She plans to add little seahorse's and shells into the designs.
I planned on entering this quilt into my guild's quilt show 
next summer... so I asked for something extra special in the quilting.

She is a fan of Green Fairy and has her book...
so she decided it was time to play!

Thelma aka Cupcake n Daisies made the same quilt and Judi at Green Fairy 
quilted hers... it is stunning to say the least...
so if mine turns out any where near as good I will be happy!
And so far so good.

Aren't you thrilled with those pictures? I would be on pins and needles waiting for it to come home. I love the quilt itself though - great for Christmas and year round. Will you keep it or gift it?

I love your quilt and the quilting on it is beautiful so far.

Absolutely love this! Can't wait to see it quilted! Did you use different lines of fabric? They all blend so well together :)

The quilting is amazing! These long arm quilters who can just draw like this with thread are such talented artists aren't they.
