Off the Frame

This is such a sweet quilt for a baby girl soon to be born in the southwest.  I met the most cheerful young quilter at our guild and agreed to quilt it for her to send to a friend.  Since the quilt maker and her husband are both aerospace engineers, she opted to emphasize the stars in this top.

The nursery rhyme fabrics contained whimsical drawings.  So the quilting was an easy decision.  Fun, whimsical "sine waves" in the brown fabrics framing each block to bring out the engineer and more stars with loops in the borders and alternating blocks.

The pink plaid in the first border providing nice markings to play.  More sine waves with large data points.  Or, for the less math minded, swirling curves with loops. 

This cannot be comfortable.  But it did make me laugh!  That naughty squirrel just knocked down the hook a few minutes ago.  Now he can eat upright.
Eating his stolen goods.

Time for another seed.

Enjoy your day!

  1. Lovely quilt, as usual.

    The squirrels hang upside down to eat all the time down here. And they've suddenly become ravenous after pretty much leaving us alone over the winter!!
