Mibsie's Doggies Quilt

Every now and then I get a quilt that stumps me for deciding how to quilt it. This was one of them. It was just so perfect on its own, that I didn't want to do anything to take away from the fun piecing, and the adorable fabrics. I didn't want to spoil the quilt, and everything I thought of to do would have involved quilting on top of all those fun fabrics. Until, that is, I had an "aha" moment...... quilt it so the quilting doesn't show. It seemed strange for a quilter to be doing that, but it's what this quilt wanted. I ended up stitching in the ditch on either side of the black sashing, and extending the straight lines from the ditch stitching out into the border. It anchored the quilt together, and let the fabrics be the star of this quilt.

  3. What a fabulous quilt! Sometimes the easiest-seeming solutions are the best, even though your skills are so much more advanced..... but if that's what the quilt asked for, who are you to argue?!

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
