Seven Dancing Sisters

My friend Pat is very talented, I had her show me all of her quilts while I visited.  I am only going to show you two quilts today.  She calls this quilt "Seven Dancing Sisters" and says "It's a bit like the classic Seven Sisters pattern, but with elongated star points"
 Pat saw a version of this quilt online and then drafted her own version.  I believe this is Boy Cat, she has a brother and sister that look identical, of course she can tell the difference!  LOL
Here is a closeup view of the quilting she did on this quilt.
 Don't you love it?  As for quilting it, she did some straight line stitching on her Davis Vertical Feed (a treadle), but her friend finished it on her long arm
She put a piped binding on this quilt.  She says it is pretty easy to do, I'll have to try it sometime.
This is an applique quilt that is hanging above the bed.  Her applique looks flawless to me!
I still have a ton more quilts to show you later!  I've been in Dallas all week with my husband's work conference.  Pictures will follow later!
