I have started quilting on a customer quilt, Wendy Trasky’s “Coming Home” by Mckenna Ryan.
I love Mckenna’s patterns, they are such works of art. This quilt is going to belong to Wendy’s son, so I am going to try & keep the quilting masculine, & in keeping with the pattern. In the first border, I am doing bushy leaves, & a few bear footprints.
On the right hand corner, near the big fish I’ve put a little river in the quilting.
This is going to be a fun quilt. It will also be interesting to see how I end up doing the next quilt, that Wendy’s daughter Tracy made. It’s the same pattern, but a little different colors. I’ll talk to Tracy to find out more, but I think she made hers for herself, so I will likely do the border completely differently for her, than for her brother. Something a little more feminine. I have ideas swirling in my brain……
