Kite Flight Quilt + Quilting Video

I just recently quilted this beautiful Kite Flight quilt by Heather Wall (@heathersnacks).  If i’m remembering correctly, Heather is a new-ish quilter, and she did a really wonderful job on this.  The seams weren’t too bulky, everything laid flat and lined up well and was relatively square, which I noticed would be rather hard to achieve with all the bias seams that end up in this block.  She was going back and forth between two patterns and ultimately let me decide on the best one for the quilt.  I think Rainbow Clams ended up being perfect for the top.  Not only does the rainbow design go with the rainbow fabrics, it also softened up the straight angles of the quilt.

I quilted this quilt back in December for Melissa Everett.  (It’s the January Quilt pattern by Lady Havertine.) This past week she entered this in the Smoky Mountain Quilter’s Quilt Show (with a couple other beauties) and it won Honorable Mention in ‘Large 2 Person Team’ and also won the ‘Modern Quilt Award’.  I think it’s well deserved for
