Kelly Cline Quilting

Last Custom Quilt for 2015!

Customer Quilts | January 1, 2016 | By

This gorgeous quilt made by my friend and customer, Joy, was my last big custom finish for 2015! The pattern is a BOM, by Nancy Rink, called El Camino Real. It was a real challenge because I chose to do an intricate border, loaded with ruler work. I mixed free motion work with computer quilting. It hardly pays to work so hard in a busy fabric that will never be seen. Save the spectacular stuff for solid areas of fabric!

Just for fun I measured how many feet of ruler work went into that crazy border……33 linear feet! Trust me, it was worth it in the end, but it almost drove me to drink ;)!! I love how it turned out and so did Joy. I look forward to many more beautiful quilts in 2016. Thanks for following my journey! Happy New Year!!!
