El’s Kitchen #2

Standard

This is El’s Kitchen #2 (Carol’s quilt)

The real challenge with this quilt was to be sure the quilting was different but with the same quality.  A couple of the blocks just couldn’t be changed much at all but most of them were open for alternate quilting designs.  Here are the blocks, see what you think.

Here is a pic of the quilt itself–it is huge and we weren’t able to get the whole thing with the borders too, but I have some pics of the borders too.

The center basket block was challenging, so instead of straight lines in the background I used little wiggly lines.  I like how it turned out.

The outer corners of the setting for the basket were feathered like El’s Kitchen #1 (June’s quilt) but the spines are shaped differently.  I LOVE doing freehand feathers!

Now for the borders!  I was thinking about how to do these long before I finished June’s quilt.  If you remember I did piano keys on it and loved how it looked, but didn’t want to do the same thing on Carol’s.  So here is the result!

I LOVE the borders!  I think Carol does too.

A big thank you to both June and Carol for allowing me to work on their quilts.  The workmanship of both quilts made them easy to work with.
