The joy of variegated thread!

This is a surprise quilt for my oldest grand-daughter. Her birthday is June 20th and I think it is time for another quilt. At 13 she deserves to step up to another quilt level-no more cartoon characters, no more Disney princesses (sob!!), but not yet completely grown up. So this wild and scrappy Log Cabin seems just the trick. The variegated thread used for the machine quilting is perfect. I am so thrilled with the machine quilting on this-it is wonderful to work for a quilter who respects what I do and is only focused on enhancing my work.

Jenny Patterson of Cattails Machine Quilting is so easy to work with. It makes finishing a quilt even more fun! Check her out at http://www.cattailsmachinequilting.com/.
