This is Noreen's Dovetail quilt, pattern by Atkinson Designs

If you clicked the link and looked at the pattern, you'll see that Noreen laid hers out differently, and made hexagons!  I really like how you changed the pattern Noreen.

I pulled this quilt out of the bag, and instantly saw that I could quilt it like I contacted the client and asked if the budget was flexible enough to allow this type of light custom quilting instead of E2E, and I sent a little diagram of what I envisioned.  Luckily, she said yes.  (although an E2E would have looked wonderful too).  If she had wanted an E2E, I probably would have had to buy the pattern and make the quilt myself.

 I used varied designs in the straight line quilted blocks, and the echoed arcs in the curved blocks.   All designs inspired by Angela Walters quilting.

And I love the design from the back too  There's some neat secondary designs to see when the piecing isn't influencing the brain.

The backing was flannel, warm and white batting.  I forget what thread I used.  Looks like Glide.

Thank you Noreen, for letting me quilt for you. I had so much fun.


  1. Love this quilting design...simple but unique.

  2. Nicely done and the designs work well in it.
