This is another quilt I longarmed for Quilts from the Bluffs. Isn’t it the most darling little quilt?
The 9-patches are bold & distinctively stand out in the quilt. And by adding in the skinny teal inner border they gave the quilt a nice “pop”. Now your eye isn’t getting bored with looking at pink & brown.
The complementary print fabric adds texture and subtlety- see how it appears to hang out in the background & doesn’t overpower the 9-patches? This is a great use of a print fabric!
Then the added brown cornerstones in the outside border then create a sense of continuity.
For the quilting I chose the pattern “Jilly” by Keryn Emmerson because the round design worked with the flowers in the print while at the same time the center of the swirls gives some dimension to the quilt.
This quilt is one of the best examples of traditional quilt design I’ve seen recently. I hope this quilt is kept a little girl warm this chilly winter!
