Lilac Splendor Quilt

Such a beautiful quilt to work on. Especially in the middle of the winter.  Great reminder that spring is coming.

I think every custom quilt I work on becomes my favorite.  This is a gorgeous quilt pieced by Rosanna. The pattern was featured in the July/August issue of McCall's Quilting.  Here is a link to the free pdf pattern for a table runner.

What a difference a bit of stitching makes! Applique' block is bursting with energy.

I love the texture the background fill gave to this quilt.  The majority of patterns were by Nancy Haacke of Wasatch Quilting.  The background fill is by Anne Bright and the small corner feathers are by One Song Needle Arts.  The scalloped triangle design is a conglomeration of two designs I altered and combined in Art and Stitch to conform with the scallops and the appliqued blocks and the stop borders were done free motion.  I think the free motion echo quilting adds a lot of movement to the quilt.

Enjoy Lilac Splendor!
