Pam's quilt

This is a beautiful little quilt made by Pam, and I totally enjoyed quilting this one.  I enjoy all the quilts I wok on, but I especially had fun with the curved cross hatching.  It seems like I have been doing a lot of cross hatching lately, so I guess I better like it.  I like the order it gives to things, being able to divide a border easily, and make a new design that compliments the design in the other borders.  I used  Ronda's Rulers.  The fabric was Basic Grey, Curio.

I need to apologize for the next photo of the whole quilt.  I don't know how you all photograph your entire quilts.  I see it done all the time, so I know it is possible.  

I used the curved ruler in each border, but the angles and size changed, so the design changed, but with each design having an arch as the foundation, they all worked together.

Thanks for reading, I appreciate it.



  1. Your quilting is amazing. Could those rulers be used if i have a domestic machine. I love the look of the curves. Compliments piecing nicely.

    1. Hi Esther! My quilt couldn't be more beautiful! I love the way you made such a modest quilt into a work of art! Thanks so much! Pam

  2. Gorgeous quilting! I photograph my quilts by sticking them to a shaded outside wall with lots of double-sided tape (carpet tape for the heavier quilts), then standing back and getting straight-on. I'm investigating getting some sheets of insulation board which I can mark a grid on, and pin them (with tiny plain pins) to that - then position the boards against the same wall.

  3. beautiful quilt! The curved cross hatching is wonderful!
