Saturday Surprise Quilt

 lorna1
This is Lorna’s Saturday Surprise quilt and it was a 2012 BOM project.   Lorna decided to put her blocks on point and added the criss cross sashing design which looks fantastic in the two colors giving it a woven effect. The fabric choices are brilliant and the cool mint green with the red is stunning.

She asked for custom quilting and to just have fun with it so I did!  I started with the Beadboard design in the outer border, used my channel locks on my Millennium for this design.  Then quilted feathers in the setting triangles, curls in the sashing and various designs in the blocks and keep the quilting light.  SID on the sashing strips and around the blocks.

Lorna brought extra wide Stonehenge backing which is one of my favorites to quilt on as it is so soft and shows off the quilting very well.
