Cora Quilt

sd2 - Copy

This is Sandra’s Cora Quilt and it is a pattern designed by Fabriculous Quilt Shop.  I just love the large Ric Rac in the inner border, that really makes this quilt special.   She purchased this as a kit from Fabriculous, here is a link to their website.

Sandra left the quilting design up to me and at first I thought I would do free hand swirl across it as she said this will be a dragger quilt for her granddaughter. But then changed my mind since the batting is Dream Puff and the backing is Minkie, I really wanted this to be a squishy soft quilt for a toddler to drag around, so more open quilting was the way to go.  I decided on a large orange peel design since I had a perfect grid to work with and I also wanted to try more of my new Quilted Pineapple Templates.  This time I tried the 10 inch template and I love how it turned out!    I stitched in all the ditches and around the Ric Rac  and then added a simple X in the outer squares for contrast.

  8. Kathy I love your work! Do you have a tutorial (or know of one) on continuous circles in squares? I quilt on a domestic machine and haven't yet figured out that "continuous" part lol! Thanks! Melinda

    1. I have a great diagram I could email you if you give me your address. You are a noreplyblogger so I couldn't respond to your comment by email.
