My latest finish, Moonlight, uses Erica Jackman's pattern, Harper. It's a fun and easy quilt using basic Drunkard's Path blocks.

Some quilts are easy for me to to come up with quilting ideas for, and some are really really hard. For me, Moonlight was particularly challenging because of the printed background. Usually my quilts tend to have printed foreground components and solid backgrounds, so when I have a printed background, I really don't know what to do. The usual fillers I like to do in the background would all be too busy for the already busy background fabric.

But I know that dot-to-dot designs usually look good on prints, so that's what I did in the background. And as a bonus, dot-to-dot designs in the background blocks, when placed together, also create secondary designs. But I was also in the mood for some feathers.

I quilted the moons with an alternating design. It's definitely my favorite part of the quilt, it almost has a glow to it next to the indigo fabrics.

There are no solids to be found on the front of this quilt, which is pretty rare for me. But it allows me to quilt it on the lighter side, allowing for a cuddlier quilt than usual. It's really hard to see the quilting on the front though, but the back shows it well!

  2. What a great variation of the drunkard's path! It really does shine like moonlight. Your quilting choices are spot on, as usual. I love how they show up on the back so well :)

  3. I love this -- it really does look like moonlight! I think quilting choices are perplexing, but you handle them so well! Another beauty, Liz!

  4. What a great scrappy quilt top and once again it's a beautiful two-sided quilt due to your quilting. :)

  5. Fabulous! Blue is my favorite color, so I'm particularly partial to this one.

  6. Brilliant thoughts on quilting printed background fabrics, Liz. Love the indigo. Are yours the larger polka dots from the pattern?
