Hello 2022.................


Hello Quilty Friends.
Happy New Year, I hope your Christmas celebrations suited you well.

As I write this post I'm not quite back into quilting for my customers yet, but soon.
I've been soaking up my holidays as last year was absolutely bonkers!
This quilt is actually from last year, but due to the very s-l-o-w postal system it took a long time to be returned to it's owner in Australia.

Pattern - Unknown to me.
Measurements - 73"x 73"
Quilting - Custom Quilting.
Batting - Cotton - Purchased from me.
Backing - Supplied by customer.

In the next two photo's you will see how & what I used for designing the blocks. 
A big piece of plexi plastic & a white board marker - I it placed over some of the blocks, doodled some ideas, removed those I didn't like - kept the design I liked close to use as a guide.
I did this after I quilted all the feather wreaths, which is a digital design. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you would have seen the hyperlased video.

The edge of the plexi plastic is taped off with blue tape.


The next quilt was made by me and gifted to a family member.
