Navigate quilt for Sew Many Creations

After the rush of quilting for Market this spring I've actually spent some time working on my own projects! It's been really nice to get a few things done, but I'm also trying to show more of my long arming and build my client base a bit. :) I'm going to share more projects on here - some new, and some a bit older, some are mine, and some I quilted for others!

I quilted this for Jessica of Sew Many Creations. I think this was part of fall Market 2014, so maybe you've seen it around the quilting world by now! The pattern is called Navigate, and you can purchase it through the link above.

The pattern calls for paper piecing, and is made up for 2 blocks. I quilted the same design in each matching block. Here's the block with the cream background, I mixed up some straight lines and curves:

Same block at another angle (I love this bright orange, but it's hard to photograph!):

And here's the second block:

Another angle of the second block:

I used a mix of pebbles, swirls, paisleys and echos in the background, and I let the background quilting flow out into the two borders. I really wanted the blocks to pop, because they are so pretty!

I have another paper pieced quilt by Sew Many Creations that I can't wait to share - I just need to figure out where my new Mac "reorganized" it to for me. :)

The quilt is very pretty, esp. after you added your magic touch.
