I have a quilt featured in the recent (Spring 2012) issue of Easy Quilts from Fons & Porter, entitled Card Tricks.
It features the fabric line Ascot from Windham Fabrics.
I designed the quilt using the EQ7 software. I think the “virtual quilt” presented a very accurate rendition of what the actual quilt would look.
In the narrow outer border I quilted a piano key design using the straight edge of the Mini-Scallop ruler from HQ.
The ruled lines were a great aid in ensuring even spacing of the piano keys
In the wider border I quilted a swirling pattern.
I was at a loss about what to quilt in the blocks and I had a nice chat with my friend Debby Brown and she suggested this pattern. I really like how it turned out.
This shot of the back of the quilt gives you an idea of the overall quilting.
