Sunday Ride Quilt


This is Linda’s Sunday Ride quilt and the pattern is by Cherry Blossoms Quilting Studio.   This will be a wedding gift for one of her granddaughters, what a lovely gift!  The applique pieces are all fused and then she did a machine zig zag stitch to hold all the pieces in place.  Lots of hand embroidery stitches as well.   She asked for custom quilting and liked how the cover of the pattern was quilted so gave me that to use as inspiration.  I quilted the blocks similar to the pattern but then added the loops in the sashing and the feather curl design in the outer border.  I stitched in the ditch around the main elements of the applique pieces.


I quilted the whole quilt in white So Fine thread as all the applique stitching was done in white thread.  Made my job easy with no thread changes.   Batting is Quilters Dream Blend.



  1. Gosh at first I thought that was a panel quilt! As usual, really lovely quilting. I use a similar border design from time to time.

  2. What a gorgeous quilt. It will make the perfect gift.

  3. Too pretty to be true....I hope the recipient appreciates its "specialness"!
