Seeing Triple at the Longarm

Alice made three Seattle Seahawks quilts for her family in Washington. They're all three made from the same quilt pattern, a sort of arrow design.

I quilted the first one with an edge-to-edge design called "Spring Thing".

Alice requested different color thread on each quilt. Since this one has a green backing, I used "Kiwi" colored thread from Glide.

Here's the second quilt on the longarm bars:

And, all quilted up using the "Harbour Wave" quilting pattern.

The backing on this second quilt is a navy blue. I used "Sky" colored Glide thread.

And the third quilt. I worked on these quilts over several days, this one in the evening.

This quilting is called "Fern Meander":

The backing on this was a pieced combo of three Seahawks fabrics.

This version was done in white Glide thread. 

Great job, Alice!!! Your family will love wrapping up in these team spirit quilts.

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  1. Some lucky family members are going to be really happy! Good thing the backs are different, so there's a way to tell them apart. Nice work, Nancy! Where do you get your Glide thread?

  2. I really like the Fern Meander! You have such a great repertoire of motifs, Nancy!

  3. So hard to say which one I like best! They all look terrific, I think Harbour Wave may be my favorite, but again, a really hard choice.

  4. How fun seeing all three quilted differently! What a great idea!

  5. There will be three lucky sports fans!! Each of the Seahawk quilts turned out great. Your quilting made them extra special!

  6. Wow, what a terrific Christmas this will be in that household! Beautiful job on the quilting.

  7. Oh wonderful! I love seeing the different designs on the same pattern / fabric. You don't usually get to see that :) I can't decide which one I like best, but it's between Harbour Wave and Fern Meander, both are gorgeous!

  8. It is way too hard to choose a favorite. I can tell you they all look fantastic! Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  9. These are so fun and I love that each one is quilted differently!

  10. Hi Nancy,
    What fun quilts for those Seahawks fans! They are each beautiful and fun, yet different and unique as well. I love your choices in quilting. I am sure Alice and her peeps will be so happy, as Alice did a fabulous job herself. ~smile~ Roseanne

  11. Oh my goodness, that is a cute pattern! Love that you quilted each one differently. (I actually have some of that Seattle Seahawks backing fabric! LOL)
