HQ Studio Educator’s Quilting Featured in Feb. 2014 American Patchwork and Quilting

Once again the HQ Studio Educators have outdone themselves. They quilted the alternate version of Brigitte Heitland’s quilt, named Ring Around. Brigitte’s version highlighted her Zen Chic fabric, Barcelona.

We love how the plaid-style quilting behind the appliquéd circles contrasts straight lines with the curved appliqué.

The circles themselves are enhanced with ribbon quilting, feathers, and arcs and lines that compliment the appliqué. (Sorry for the errant thread in the photo.)

And here’s Vicki free-motion quilting the figure-eights around the circles in the border. That really makes the circles pop in the finished quilt.
