Have I mentioned how much I love quilting? Possibly. Ha! Seriously, how lucky am I to get to work on beautiful client quilts like this! A majestic, elegant "Take 5" quilt. I realized today (after making piles of "Take 5" quilt blocks that will go to the Humboldt community) that this quilt is also a "Take 5" pattern. Beautifully set on point, with luscious text setting triangles. The fabrics are a beautiful, heathery-grey tone.
I did up an informal quilting plan with swags and double beadboard in the borders, echoed triangles in the setting triangles, swags and a swirl in each block. That is the super-fancy quilting plan is a printout of a picture of a corner of the quilt, inserted into a sheet protector, and drawing with dry-erase markers. Quilting plan approved, off I went and had a blast!
Tried to get the beadboard in the inner border to line up with the beadboard above the swags.
The backing was a fabulous match to the material in the top, and light and airy. The client was happy, I was happy!
