Lantern quilt

One of my customers is Kathleen Khosravi, a quilt pattern designer.  Her quilt, Lanterns in the Window, was recently shown at Market by Quiltwoman.  I was honored to quilt for her, and due to severe time restraints, we chose a fun, all-over quilting pattern, which I learned from my friend Suzanne Earley on Machine Quilter’s Resource.  I added some swirls to the quilting, which I call “Suzanne’s Paisley Swirls”.

Here’s the (almost) overall quilt– a fun to piece pattern with lots of potential for playing with fabric:

Here’s a close up of the sashing and lanterns:

I also was able to get a nice photo showing the quilting pattern on the back:

This is a great all-over freehand pattern.  I’ll use it again soon.  Thanks, Suzanne!

    The quilting is so amazing it reminds me of frosting. Did you use a narrow double needle?
