Arcadia: Another finish!

A year ago, almost to the day, I finished the top for this fun and modern Arcadia quilt. Then it sat on my shelf, got boxed up and moved to Texas, where it sat on my shelf again, then repeat (box, move to Arizona, shelf) until….it was finished!

I  owe all of that to Stephanie, the Late Night Quilter, who kindly quilted it for me.  She has recently purchased a long arm machine and was looking for  tops she could practice on…for free!  Ummm..yeah.  I jumped on that opportunity.

She may be a newbie but she did an excellent job!
Stephanie wanted to practice an all over pattern, so I asked her to do something similar to interlocking boxes.  I think it shows up really well on the back.  It turned out so cute!


It’s a fairly large-scale design so the quilt is nice and soft and snuggly.  You bet this one is being used!


Thank you for your beautiful work, Stephanie.  I love it!

  • Congratulations on another finish! The quilting on the back looks great; I love how solids can show off the quilting.

  • This is a super cute quilt, and congrats on the finish! I Really like the quilting pattern, it looks great.

  • What an exciting finish. She did a great job on your quilt top. And so nice to have it finished for your next move.

  • Oh I love that backing fabric; it’s perfect! Stephanie did a really good job; I’m jealous of her new long arm! (I bet that sounds weird to non-quilters LOL “did you hear? Stephanie has a long arm!” ha). Generous of her to do it for free too. Too bad I live so far away!
