One of the greatest parts about my job (and trust me, there are tons of great parts about my job)... I love hearing about the stories of what inspired you to make a quilt or who you're making it for and why.
It really helps me to figure out a plan of attack so I know how to quilt it and how it'll be used because that may change my plan a bit. For instance I will quilt a wall hanging a little differently than a love-use-&-abuse quilt.
Not sure whether this quilt would drape over the back of a couch or be a wall hanging eventually, we decided to quilt it with chevrons to emphasize the long squares and give it body for draping.
We originally talked about an argyle type design but the more I looked at the quilt, it was too busy and would compete with the quilt top itself. Quilting should enhance a quilt, not take away from the quilt top. Or at least that's my opinion :)
This quilt actually inspired me to tackle one of my own projects. Come on back tomorrow and I'll show you what I have in mind. The quilt may not actually be quilted by the time the plan posts here on the blog... But hopefully in the near future I'll have it finished!
Thanks, Beth! I love this quilt and I had so much fun working on it.
