ELIQ 2014 Raffle quilt

ELIQ's 2014 raffle quilt was designed by Roberta Leonard--a modern twist on the Trip Around the World pattern.  It was icing on the cake that the winner, Joyce Fischer, is not only a guild member, she's also an AQS certified quilt appraiser!

I quilted a combination of spirals and pebbles on the black and white background pieces, continuous curves on all of the 2" squares, and 1/2" parallel lines on the 4" horizontal and vertical strips.

The 8" blue strips were quilted with a Kim Brunner digital design.
There are, I believe, 192 four inch blue, purple, white, and yellow squares in the quilt. 
I quilted each of them differently,
using Leah Day's for inspiration.
Don't worry, I'm not posting them all, but it was hard to choose!
Please keep in mind, the individual blocks shown below are all 4" squares.



And now a few group shots : ) 


  1. That quilting is unbelievable! The winner of that quilt is a lucky lady!
