About five years ago, I designed a quilt incorporating some of my favorite quotes about writing. Since I was piecing the words out of individual letters, I tried to keep the quotes short, but I still ended up with a pretty big quilt. For about four years, it was waiting to be quilted by the wonderful quilter I had used many times before. Sadly, she decided to retire, so she returned the quilt to me. Fortunately, I heard about the wonderful Richard Larsen of the Quilting Design Studio. He did an absolutely gorgeous job for me. Isn’t it great?
Black and White and Read All Over
I love these quotes on writing, especially the Emerson one:
The detail in the quilting is just wonderful:
This is the back of one of the stars showing the beautiful quilting.
A gorgeous feathered square.
I love this tiny stippling!
Aren't the feathers lovely?
I even got him to hide little outlines of my cats in the stippling.
I still have to trim the excess batting and backing (all the white around the edges) and add the binding, but that shouldn’t take long. I’m so pleased with all of it. Thanks, Richard!
