Rachel's Tribute BOM ~ Quilting

My new Block of the Month, Rachel's Tribute, made her debut at quilt market last week.  I thought I'd show you the drop dead beautiful quilting my friend Val Krueger (Las Vegas, NV) put into my quilt.  

I designed this quilt to replicate and honor the many, many green & red quilts that were so popular in the 1850's.  Often those quilts were appliqued, but many were pieced like Rachel.
I kept the lighting in the room low as it makes the quilting easier to see.  Val did a truly spectacular job!
This quilt has tons of space to show off beautiful quilting.  Yours will, too!
There's just one light print in the collection to replicate the look of the muslin used in the vintage quilts.  The light print isn't a solid like muslin.  It has a very soft print making the color even yummier.   There are also nine new red prints and nine new green prints.  You can see the entire collection here.

Rachel's Tribute begins next March, and is only available from a participating quilt shop, so ask for Rachel's Tribute at your local shop!  They want to know what you're interested in!  

Big, big thanks to Val Krueger for putting all that beautiful quilting into Rachel.  Love your creativity and talents, Val!

  1. Beautiful quilt and the quilting is truly spectacular. Is that done by hand with a regular sewing machine or with a long arm? I can't imagine what the bill was! LOL! The combination of Rachel and the quilting is a match made in heaven!
