Red Brolly

Polka Dot Girls
There is something special about stitchery quilts, I'm not sure if it just because I like them or the fact that the stitcheries add a little something to what would normally be a nice quilt.
Anyway the colours of the Red Brolly quilt are very stunning.The maker of this quilt, Denise made one block and showed it to a recently engaged couple to gauge if they liked it or not as she wanted to make it as  wedding present for them, they did so Denise went full steam ahead.........

With my trusty favourite threads I went ahead with Denise's instructions of 'please no quilting across the stitcheries'.......Oh as if I could,they are so beautiful.
I decided to play with texture and patterns......

  1. The quilt is lovely Leeanne, I love the texture in it and I also really like the back view, it's almost two quilts in one, certainly something to be treasured by the recipients.

  2. Beautiful quilting - and a lovely quilt..

  3. Leanne this is a beautiful quilt and the quilting you have done is gorgeous. You certainly couldn't quilt over the stitcheries I agree. Must be so satisying to see the finished quilt.

  4. This has turned out so lovely... with Denise's gorgeous stitcheries and your gorgeous quilting. I bet she is happy with it, and the couple it is for will love it too.

  5. So sweet, and I love the colors! Have you checked out all the quilty links shared over at yet? I think you would be inspired!
