The “Circuit Rider” Quilt

I finished this a few weeks ago for my dear friend, Gwen. The pattern is called, The Circuit Rider, by Jenifer Dick.

I needed to finish quite a few quilts for our upcoming guild show, so I was looking for a quicker way to finish an applique. I used the Bethanne Nemesh method of mid-custom quilting.

I probably saved 3 hours by NOT ditch stitching most of this quilt. Instead, I worked the feathers and motifs right UP to the applique. It’s brilliant! What a time saver!

Everything on this quilt is free motion and the echoing on the applique is simply “eye balled”. Once you get the rhythm and movement, it goes fairly quick! Total time on this quilt was 10 hours.

The back is a good illustration of how the motifs work up to the vine. No ditch stitching required!

    Incredible quilting. I’m guess on a long-arm. Thank you too for sharing the back.

    Love the quilting. Can’t believe it was done in 10 hours-looks like hours more.

    I love everything about this quilt, the blocks, the colours and of course the quilting. Is the pattern available anywhere?
