This quilt was a gift for a dear sweet customer - She has been toying with this idea for almost a year now, and we nailed down a pattern (after much back and forth) and here is the final result!!
It was fun getting to design an applique quilt from scratch. Of course I couldn't make it just a normal sashed applique quilt! I made the blocks "framed" and TILTED. (gluten for punishment I guess) But doesn't it look great?? Such fun bold colors, and just perfect.
Here are all the fabrics that we chose for this quilt.

Here are some closeups of the quilting.
For the white areas I did my version of McTavishing. . . ORRR.. S's and Comets (because I think thats what they look like, and S stand for SHAUNA!) Shauna is a big fan of chocolate chip cookies, and although a challenge, I found a way to include that next to her name ;c)
I quilted straight lines in the background areas of the blocks, and I left the "frames" empty, because they poofed up and looked cute that way. For the center black frame, I did a large half feather. For the colored inner frame, I did a checkerboard.
The appliques incluce a female silhouette, high heel, flowy dress, pearl necklace, lipstick, perfume, purse, diamond ring, iphone, martini glass, and sunglasses.
