Colleen's Green and Gray Star Quilt

 It's always fun to see what my customers bring to me to quilt for them.  Colleen's creations never disappoint.  This is her Gray and Green Star Quilt.  Isn't it beautiful?


I actually remembered this time to take a "before" picture. As I've mentioned before, her quilts are always a pleasure to work on because they are well constructed.

She picked a new-to-me panto called London Fog and once I started stitching it I definitely liked how it turning out. So Fine Silver was the thread of choice for the top.
This is the completed quilt fresh off the frame.
The panto design worked so well to provide great movement across the quilt without distracting from the piecing.
I think this new panto is going to become very popular with my customers.
I love, love, love the backing fabric she provided.  The print is so fun.  The only negative discovered after this was finished is that we both felt she should have picked a darker thread for the bobbin so the stitching would have shown a little more. This was So Fine Genoa Gray. Lesson learned.
Colleen was beyond thrilled with the final result.  This beauty is a gift for her daughter and I know that she'll love it.
Colleen also brought me the more gorgeous Navy and White Hunter's Star quilt to stitch next.  Wait until you see how it turned out.
