WIP Wednesday

I got my Hadley quilt back from the long-arm quilter this weekend, so this is a nearly finished WIP (but a WIP all the same).  Since I used Denyse Schmidt fabric to make a Denyse Schmidt-esque quilt, I decided it needed to be quilted a la Denyse Schmidt as well, with that figure eight design she uses on a lot of her quilts.

I am completely and utterly in love with the quilting.  It was done by Sue Burnett using a digital quilting pattern and it turned out even better than I expected.

I really wanted to make this quilt double sided, and as much as I like the front, I really can't wait to reveal the "back", which I haven't shown yet.  The quilting in cream thread looks particularly nice on the cream fabric I used on the back.

Now I just need finish binding this quilt and then find the perfect place to photograph it!

The quilting looks great, the perfect loopy pattern to use on a quilt made with DS fabrics.

This looks beautiful Adrianne! I like using solids for the back, especially if I am getting a quilt done by a long arm as they show off the quilting so well.

The solids you used perfectly complement and balance the kinda wild Hadley prints! Can't wait to see the back :)
