Jubilant about Jubilation Quilt!

Designed and Pieced by Alice Baird
Machine Quilted by Judy Steward

At last!  Six months after attending Quilting Adventures and making this quilt under the tutelage of Cara Gulati, the quilt is done!  I picked it up from the superlative machine quilter, Judy Steward, who does all my machine quilting for me and has for years.  I could not be happier with it.  Once the binding is hand-sewn to the back (Judy sews it to the front by machine before turning it back over to me), and we've hired some men to come hang it on a very high wall, I will take pictures of it in place in our living room.  Here it is pinned to my design wall.  Now, some pictures to show how beautifully this quilt was quilted by Judy!

I truly love the quilting design and the thread color Judy used
to quilt the background fabric!


  1. That is certainly a winner. Judy did such a fabulous job repeating your patterns and coming up with more that fit so well. What a big thrill to get to hang! MORE MORE MORE

  2. I agree with Linda on every thought. The colors are WONDERFUL, as well as all the interesting, fun design. I am eager to see it hanging. I know you must feel GREAT to have accomplished such a lovely, artistic piece.

  3. The blues and the reds are stunning. I love the stripy square, too. As you have noted, I am especially turned on by arcs and circles. I think this is your most beautiful quilt yet.

  4. I agree that this may be your best one yet. Make sure you take a pic of it hanging. Susan B
