Heritage Stories: Kay's Applique

Today I FINALLY get to show you
what I worked on this summer:) 
Kay and I have been FB friends for years and
as I posted some of my commission work,
it must have peaked her interest.
Kay's Country Applique
I am pretty sure that by now you all know my passion for applique. Imagine my excitement when I had the honor of quilting these lovelies designed by Marion Vernon and Carlene Buck!!
I am so glad that Kay recognizes what an amazing job she did stitching these!!  This is another fun part of Heritage Quilting for me...I get to wonder in awe at the work and time taken to add each little perfect stitch into a piece of art.
Here is a back shot of the quilting because
sometimes it is lovely from the back too:)
You don't always need to mark out a design either. 
Let the fabric talk to you and tell you how to quilt it.
The plaid like print was perfect for double row cross-hatch
and added loads of texture to the final look.
 Hanging Diamonds were the perfect background fill
so that the applique was the star of the block and worked as a
different texture to the plaid print.

Until next time,
Keep Quilting

You not only did a fantastic job quilting this, but you shared the journey we both completed to make this amazing piece happen. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
