I came home from vacation to a wonderful surprise. My Big Blue quilt top had been shipped to me from Emily Sessions. I quilt most of my quilts but when I am looking for something special I have turned to Emily to do custom quilting for me.

Emily does a wonderful job. You can see her work on another quilt of mine here:

Loving how this quilt has turned out. It was heavily inspired by a painting of Alain Bilteryest.
Alain Biltereyst – Minimalist Geometric Paintings / Aqua-Velvet.
I think it looks a little like a flag while one of my friends says it looks like “two sergeants getting married”. That comment had me investigating military badges and medals. . . I may have found a new fount of inspiration.
Happy creating everyone.

Looks fantastic! Really like the skinny stripe and the choice of quilting in each area is really nice!
Thanks Ruth! Emily did an amazing job with the quilting for sure.
How amazing is the back! I think you’ll be using both sides equally. Great design – it will make such a impact in a room.
Thanks Kristy. I almost always like the simple backs on quilts as much as the fancy fronts. 🙂
Oh I really love how the quilting turns the back into a separate work of art. I am a sucker for deep blue and white together, so I really love how this turned out. And yay for new inspiration – awesome!
I’ve been all about the big bold look lately but now settling into some small paper piecing-a nice balance. 🙂
Wow! Love how the quilting ties it all. Love it. Flag quilts are amazing, you should check this page: sdequilts.com, big bold designs in two colours. Yours reminded me of them
Ooh Sonia, thanks for the website referral. Will have to check it out.
I feel redundant in my praise of your work 🙂 This is so lovely and the quilting enhances it so well.
Your praise is never redundant and always appreciated. Thanks. 🙂
OOh! I love the simplicity, and I really like how the quilting looks on the back. Awesome!
I love it, and yet it is totally opposite to the fiddly little things I sew. Maybe that is the exact reason I love it.
Two sergeants getting married? Hilarious!
I wouldn’t describe your makings at all that way. They are beautiful but yes I do believe. Ariety is a spice of life.
