Breaking the rules

12 posts in this topic

My customer requested "pretty but on a budget".  The panto we chose was pretty, but I just couldn't stand how the stars looked.  My customer agreed to pay extra for SID around the stars - I love the results!!  The SID really didn't take very long, and without all the other work that goes into a custom quilting job, it was budget friendly.  This could be my new "in-between" quilting for those who don't want full custom but want something a little better than E2E.

Is the E2E pattern one that can be purchased? It looks great on the quilt and with SID around the stars, they stand out. A perfect combination for this quilt. Thanks for sharing.

Happy quilting,

A good friend will come and bail you out of jail, but a best friend will be sitting next to you saying, 'Dang, that was fun'!

What a great idea!   Sometimes folks are on a budget but need a little bit more.   You came up with a wonderful solution.  And the quilt looks great!!!

Lovely, really love how your combination turned out.  I have thought of doing that before, but never did.  Great job.

Carol,

Love the idea and the panto is perfect ! :)

Did you order a custom size?  Your stitching looks to be around 2 inches apart

I love open quilting designs :)

Thanks for posting, another idea learned !!!!

Carol;

The quilting turned out beautiful.  The little extra time you put in SIDing the stars really made them pop. Hopefully you save a few pictures and show them to future customers so they can get a feel for what a little "custom work" will do on their quilt tops.  A picture is worth a thousand words as they say.  Thank you for sharing your work.

May your threads be balanced, and your bobbin forever full….
