Rustique Medallion Quilt by Emily Herrick

I had the honor of quilting this fabulous quilt for Emily Herrick to hang at International Quilt Market this past weekend. Her new fabric line is called Rustique and I LOVE it. Her colors are so saturated, and her geometric prints are just fantastic. This is one of the new lines with deer in it. Did you see pictures of Harvey in her booth? Talk about patchwork!

I had SO MUCH FUN quilting this. The design had so many areas that just screamed for different quilting designs. In the borders I did s-curves in the direction of the chevrons, and a little flower in the center square. The sashings all had ribbon candy quilting.

I kind of felt like Angela Walters quilting these motifs dot-to-dot style.

The flying geese got some continuous curve quilting. The background had tiny swirls. Aren't those fabrics fantastic?

In the center star medallion I repeated the s-curve quilting that I did in the top and bottom borders, tying it all together.
I absolutely love how this quilt turned out, and I especially loved seeing pictures of it hanging in Emily's booth. Thanks Emily for asking me to do this for you!


  1. That quilt turned out fabulous! Your quilting ideas honored the quality of that top and its piecing. How beautiful, and how exciting to have a quilt on display at Quilt Market. Congrats! That sure is neat!


Thank you for taking time to leave a comment! They make my day!
