Dot Dot Dash Quilt

Here's my new quilt for the Moda Bake Shop...A little bit inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh... I had a model to help me with the photos...
who was a bit camera shy...
and another model...
who had to keep her paws off the quilt!
It was long arm quilted by Yvonne McKee,
beautiful butterflies..a little touch of Spring in Winter..
Hope you like it, I sure had fun with it!

  19. Hi Karen, I hope you can get this message as I cannot get an email to go to you. I bought three patterns and fabrics to make Rick Rack Quilts. I have followed pattern and am ready to fold fabric for pin tucks but cannot understand how this works. All 8 strips are sewn together but where do I fold. Hope you can help. Many thanks. Vi
