Quilted, “The Mill Girls”

Customer Quilts | July 8, 2015 | By

This beautiful quilt was made by a customer for a wedding gift to her daughter. She found me through my Facebook business page, Kelly Cline Quilting, and I’m so glad she trusted me enough to mail her top across the country!


I know I yelled, “WHOA!”, when it came out of the box. It is also 98″ square, so that was a big part of my gasp. The pattern is called, “The Mill Girls”, by Nancy Rink Designs. It was a large quilt just to fit in a photo. I’ll let you enjoy the parade of photos that make up this beautiful quilt!




















Did I mention that this was double batted with 100% cotton? It will be super warm on those winter nights! I used Glide thread exclusively and blended most threads to the color of fabric. Exception being the gold thread used in the burgundy star area. I really wanted that star to pop! I used my computer for 10% of the stitching, the rest is all free motion.

I always say each quilt I am working on is my favorite, but then it has to go back to the owner and the next quilt becomes my favorite! I’m so glad I have another on the frame to look forward to, kinda takes away the sadness of losing this one. Until next time!

    It is gorgeous—but guess what, she actually is receiving TWO quilts–because the back makes it completely reversible! 🙂
