Calypso Quilt.......Fern Quilting


Time to focus on quilting the Calypso Quilt:

Day 5

The fabrics have a tropical flavor so I decided to
quilt ferns...


The Dry Erase board is a favorite for trying out new motifs...






How to draw out the Fiddlehead Fern






Fiddlehead Fern fill



Another FUN tool:


BLACK Dry Erase Board...





Neon Markers...





Makes me want to do a black quilt with Neon Threads




Time to sit down at the Sweet Sixteen:


Calypso Quilt
96 x 96 inches





Fern Quilting...













The ferns add a great texture to the quilt:


Now...I need to put down the camera and get busy.
I am hoping to have this ready for my son's birthday next weekend.
Wish me luck!

How do you like your Sweet 16? I'm thinking of purchasing one. I love the thought of sit-down quilting and I'm so used to it because I quilt with my Bernina.

You are BRILLIANT!!!!

What a great idea to use a dry erase board to audition quilting designs.


May I have permission to cross-post this at our blog for Bright Hopes Quilting? I would love our readers to see what you did

Love your fern motif! I agree - you should make a black quilt with the neon quilting!
