Helen’s Starbright

Helen entrusted me with her first ever quilt. Her workmanship is superb. Makes a quilter’s life easier. 

A huge quilt for a first. 
She gave me permission to quilt as I thought would suit.

I was particularly pleased with the stitching in the wide borders. A new technique for me, swirls and pebbles graduating out and finishing with piano keys. 

It’s always difficult to show Quilting on dark fabrics so I have washed this photo out a bit so the stitching shows.

One final peek

Helen has collected her quilt. She’s thrilled with the result.
Customer happy, I’m happy. 
That’s a win win. 
Thanks for popping by



  1. And so you should both be happy. Looks great Linda, and I love that border treatment. It looks fabulous.

  2. What a stunning quilt. I'm sure this will not be the only quilt Helen makes, as you've turned her top into a work of art. The border quilting looks fabulous.

  3. Helen's quilt is beautiful and I'm not suprised to read that she is thrilled with it...your quilting complements the quilt well without taking over :-)

  4. A tremendous first quilt and super colours. You came up with a wonderful quilting idea in the borders, I love it.

  5. More wonderful quilting, Linda, and I especially love what you have done in the borders. No wonder your client is so thrilled with her first quilt!
