When Mom found Stack n Whack quilts she found her genre. She's made lots of them and they all look great. I like quilting these for her because I can have some fun with them. I guess it's safe to assume that my attraction to kaleidoscope quilts is genetic.
Here's Mom's latest quilt that I finished this weekend.
This one is done in columns. My photos aren't the best but you will get the idea.
These were taken in the foyer with the door open. This one is from the door so the color is the most accurate here.
I quilted this one completely with ruler work. I know that most people hate ruler work but I love it. I used 2 of DeLoa Jones' Boomerang rulers and a wavy ruler by Off The Edge. I think OTE is out of business. DeLoa is in business and her Boomerang rulers are my absolute favorites.
I had been wanting to try Kathy's Curved Echo border and the blue columns were perfect for it.
For the blocks I used Superior Metallic thread and did a continuous curve in the medallions and wavy whiskers between the blocks. I couldn't figure out what to do between the blocks until Mom told me she is giving the quilt to my brother and SIL. They are cat lovers so they got whiskers.
In the sashing I quilted wavy lines. I used metallic thread in the Asian print and So Fine yellow in the rest of the quilt.
Here's the back.
I must have been a good girl last week because the bobbin ran out with the last stitch! The bonus is that I don't have to bind it.
