It's Quilted - Gaaa!!!!

Okay, go ahead and laugh at the title.  Can you tell that I'm excited?  Judi over at Green Fairy Quilts finished quilting my "Fire and Ice" quilt this week and she shared some photos of the finished quilt.  It shipped out to me yesterday and I can't wait to receive it and study it up close.  These photos are from Judi.  I'll take more of my own when I get the quilt. 
I love how from this view the quilting doesn't take away from the actual pattern of the quilt.  Then, once you get up close you see the beauty of the quilting.
The colors are a bit off here, but you can really see the detailed quilting.  I love how the large blue triangles were quilted to match the fabric used.  I also LOVE the light blue sashing.  I think the quilting there is fantastic and perfect for that spot.
Check out the quilting in the green area.  It's so different and fun.
And here are a few photos of the back of the quilt.  It's the same green on the front and I love the way you can see all of the quilting so clearly on the back.  The back is one of Judi's favorite things about a quilt. 

I'm so happy with how this came out.  I absolutely love her work.  If you're not familiar with her work, hop on over to her blog and see some of the other absolutely fantastic work that she has done.  She also has a store where she sells tons of precuts at great prices.  I've ordered from her in the past and always receive everything quickly.  (no, she's not paying me to say this.)


  1. Oh my goodness, I would be slobbering all over myself...that quilt is absoutely fabulous....the quilting is just out of this world. I just love Judi, I love her videos on showing us how to quilt....you are one lucky duck!!

  2. thank you for sharing the pics of your beautiful quilted masterpiece, I have soooo enjoyed taking the time to view all the details of the sumptuous quilting and different colored threads that create the gorgeous design on the back! What an artist I will certainly check out Judi's blog!

  3. The quilting is absolutely stunning! The piecing is great as well, but WOW the quilting really "makes" the piece.

  6. I love your quilts, just superb! I owe you an apology! I have used a photo from your blog on mine. I linked it back to you but I never asked for your permission in the first place. I am a new blogger and this bit of etiquette fell by the wayside. I am very sorry. Here's what I did http://www.blogger.com/post-edit.g?blogID=6132979819234154613&postID=5061426639586435908
    If you are cross and would rather I remove the photo I totally understand and will do so.
