Barbara’s America’s Garden

Barbara’s America’s Garden

Last week I quilted Barbara’s America’s Garden quilt.  She loved the Evan Simpler Cables pantograph design by Linda Thielfoldt, that I quilted on my aunts quilt recently, and it turned out beautiful!!!

A tip about this design...  The motif has a gap between the other motifs around it when it’s quilted out.  The designer suggested that I do a -.10 horizontal spacing to close the gap, and that does the trick.

Each state flower was created into a beautiful fabric.  Add some coordinating dotted fabric, and you have this beautiful quilt.  All fabrics were kitted by Sistersandquilters.etsy.com and while they don’t have anymore kits, they still have some of the flower fabrics.

I used a light cream 30 Tex Perma Core A&E thread and a 8020 cotton/poly blend batting.

The Even Simpler Cable quilting design adds some great movement and texture.
