Upstate Quilt - for Sew Many Creations

A quick note for anyone in upstate New York! My friend Jess, the owner of Ruby Scissors Quilt Shop in Glens Falls, NY is opening a second location! The new shop is in Towne Center Plaza in Clifton Park, NY. The address is:
1603 Route 9
Clifton Park, NY

Check out her facebook page for more details!

Now that I'm in the midst of quilting for Fall Market, I'm pulling out photos of projects that I did for Spring Market!

I've partnered up with Jessica of Sew Many Creations to quilt her pattern samples! She was my very first long arm client, and I owe her so much for having faith in me!

This pattern, Upstate, fits in really well in the Adirondacks! It wasn't my usual style of quilting, but I find that those are the most fun to quilt. It really stretches my imagination to work on projects like this, and I really love how it turned out.

The pattern alternations tree blocks and solid blocks - in this sample, Jessica used a really fun batik argyle in her solid blocks. For the argyle blocks I simply quilted straight lines following the fabric pattern.

I had so much fun with the tree blocks! The trees have swoopy branches with a woodgrain trunk and swirly lines in the background. The background batik reminded me a lot of falling snow!

I forgot to take pics of the borders! I quilted a swirl in the thinner green borders and used more straight lines in the argyle border.

Thanks for letting me quilt for you, Jess!

I know of the 2nd location and have been waiting for her to open. I'm right down the road from this place and am happy she will be closer. Glens Falls is a bit of a hike for me.
