She does it all by freehand, no computerized quilting or anything. And occasionally she quilts a little surprise into it for you..
Take a look..
Do you see the dragon fly? Here is a closer look.
And I don't know if this was intentional..the quilter herself wasn't at the quilt shop to talk to when I picked it up. But this kind of reminds me of a butterfly and only appears a couple of times in the quilt as well..
Maybe I am just imagining it..
I'm so glad I didn't attempt to do this one myself, on my little machine. I love how it turned out and can't wait to finish the binding. I think I have enough of the backing left to bind it, so the binding will be red dots.
Here are a couple more pics of the quilting.
I'm so happy with how it turned out, and can't wait to finish the binding and post a full picture of it.
Also, I have to tell you about the yummy appetizers we made while at my MIL's. You all probably already do this.. I saw it on pinterest.. You take mozzarella cheese (we got it fresh from the farmer's market from Petaluma.. soo good!) and you cube it, and put it on skewers with fresh tomatoes, and a basil leaf. Tomatoes were from the farmer's market as well, and the basil leaves from my MIL's plant. Then you drizzle them with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.. sooooo good! And they look so pretty. And so easy too! And check out those cute reusable picks that my MIL had.. never know what I'm going to find there!
These were for her.. she doesn't like tomatoes, which I find incredibly ironic considering she is half Italian and half Mexican. I mean.. what gives? lol
It was such a fun weekend.. we are looking forward to going back in a couple of weeks. And I might just have to stop by that quilt shop again on the way.. :o)
Buster is getting used to hanging out in the parking lot with my hubby while I hang out inside with my son.
And my son is getting used to running around the inside of the store taking pics with my phone. Here is one he took of the train table that they have there to play with, another favorite of his..
I love a family routine that involves stopping at a quilt shop!!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Oh that quilting is amazing! Loving the dragonfly and butterfly - just beautiful.
I think the fact that the quilt shop has a train table in it is fabulous. My 4 year old probably wouldn't complain half as much about fabric shopping if there was one of those there!
