Most of Cathy’s quilts are hand quilted but this one was quilted by one of Cathy’s helpers, a professional longarm quilter named Monica Croom.
This quilt is entirely done with appliqué. It was not quilted which allowed us a peek at Cathy’s absolutely perfect hand stitches. What a TREAT!
What a simple quilt to piece with Nine Patch and Quarter Square blocks. And if that’s not enough to make you say Ohhh then the appliqué border sure will.
Cathy is in the process of hand quilting this one. I don’t know how anybody has the patience to do that!
This little piece was about the size of a place mat. All those black strips were created by a narrow strip of fabric folded in half lengthwise and sewn in the seam. They are three dimensional!
