Taxi, Taxi !!

The Taxi Cab Quilt....
So bright and cheerful on the machine. The quilter did a great job putting this together. It has a modern feel and we wanted a quilting design to compliment that. We chose Double Bubble a Patricia Ritter pattern and it was perfect.

Here's a close up . You can see how great the design looks on the yellow stitched in black Omni thread.

There are plenty of design elements in these fabrics . We chose to emphasize the circles and it worked beautifully! The backing is the black/white/yellow print on the right and really tied the quilt together.
This design looks great in these fabrics , but would also be fun in black white red or pink. Oooh, how about B&W and lime green! Lots of possibilities for those taxis.
Next I just finished up 4 custom baby quilts and have one yet to do. Complete with binding they are ready for pickup. These are fun to make and each is different pending the client's request.

Ella, butterflies/lime green

I have a lot of fun picking out the fabrics for these quilts. I hope the babies enjoy them.
