California Dreaming Quilt

Here's another quilt I did for my customer Evelyn.  It's entitled California Dreaming, ~91x93.  I used Quilters Dream poly with Glide and Magnifico threads.  This was the first time I used this batting and I was very pleased with it, the quality is superb...I think it's much better than the Hobbs 80/20 which I usually use, but the cost is much more--of course! I used rows of organic fills alternating with rows of structured diamonds (diamond design by Judi Madsen). 
Pebbles and Rocks :)

I love this design! reminds of olives...which reminds of Gin Gimlets...which signals it's time to stop quilting! :)

  1. This looks wonderful! Great job and I love all the different designs you used!

  2. Your enjoying yourself aren't you!!!! This looks fantastic, I'm amazed at how quickly you have embraced custom quilting. Your going to have a line up of some eager customers no doubt! Thanks for sharing.

  3. This is my quilt and the picture don't really show how spectacular it is. I hope Susan is a secret for awhile because I have a lot of tops to be finished.

  4. What a great quilt! Your quilting is fabulous, I'm not surprised the quilts owner is delighted!
