Lynda's Strip Quilt

This quilt from Lynda was made as a gift for her daughter, who loves modern aesthetics. It is definitely a modern-style pattern for the quilt top, so we agreed that the quilting needed to be contemporary style, as well. No flowers or feathers. Nothing traditional or cutesy.

The pattern was called, "Gelato", and the fabric is from a series called, "Batik Shimmers".

The pieced strips got an overlapping swirls motif. Then the space of solid purple got some wavy lines and channeling effects, as well as serpentine. Overall, I tried to keep the quilting simple and clean.

My quilting is all free-motion, hand-guided on a longarm quilting machine.


  1. Great quilting choices Carrie and your work is so meticulous and well executed! Something I have to work on :o/.

  2. Great design choices! Those solid ares would have been an easy place for feathers, so you really did a great job honoring the contemporary/no feathers request .
