Anthologie Quilt in Summer Haze bundle
I sent this lovely off to the fabulous Tracy Loukota for special longarm quilting. Tracy is one of the very few quilters that I know of that does custom quilting work.
It was was worth every penny!
This is the quilt I worked on during the Anthologie quilt along all last fall and winter. See those posts here. I had so much fun working on this quilt and I immediately sent it off for longarming since I was knee deep in the middle of writing my book. It’s a bit rare for me to do that, but I found myself a bit overwhelmed and well, who doesn’t want something quilted by Tracy if you can have it.

About the Quilt
I can’t stop looking at this one and petting it. I’m just blown away with all the different quilting designs. There’s so much to see! I am still in love with my color palette. That addition of the muddy purple fabric still makes me squeal.
If I had to pick a favorite from the quilt, I’d have to choose the quilting Tracy did on the La Fleur block. Those half circles and pearls between them feel utterly fancy.
I also really love the feathers moving around the Sassy Grannies. She is just so talented!
Also, all the quilting on the Dresden plates is so different, making them even more unique. I’m definitely taking notes to make some future efforts with my own quilting.

Well, I’ll just be over here gushing and petting and squealing for a week or so. I hope it doesn’t annoy the hubs too much (not that it would stop me). I made a little video over on Instagram of this quilt and he came outside during it…
Him: Narrowing eyes, “what are you doing?”
Me: “Petting the quilt while on video. Why?”
Him: “This isn’t normal.” laughing..
Me: Scoffing, “Who wouldn’t do this?”
