Blue and White Baby Quilts

The following quilt was made by local quilter Bernice McMaster;  Bernice sent along the picture just to show what she was working on, but it was too pretty not to share. This is a baby quilt which Bernice made for Keillor House in Dorchester, N.B.  It will be set up in a frame for staff to demonstrate the art of quilting to visitors and then sold in the fall as a fundraiser for the museum.  Bernice used 12 different fabrics in this Trip Around The World;  the squares are only 1"! That's a true labour of love, Bernice.
Yesterday I started quilting the blue and white Nine Patch quilt;  mine only uses two colours, not twelve!  So far I have the feathered wreaths stitched in the plain blocks and will continue on with more free motion in the pieced sections.  Inspiration for the border has not hit as yet, but usually that becomes clearer when it's under the needle.

  1. Bernice's quilt is lovely! Feathered, that's a surprise. What do you use to mark your quilting designs?
