Buggy Barn, Primitive Quilts, quilt washing & a heart warming photo.
Before my friend Megan moved to the South Island she left me two of her quilt tops to quilt when I could. This one is a Buggy Barn design, Megan made it at a class at The Country Yard some years back, but you know, we ALL know how those 'flimsies' ( AKA quilt tops ) can accumulate!!!
Megan wanted me to quilt it the same as I did the shop sample, see this post for this quilt & a few more Buggy Barn quilts.
Mostly Madeira threads, over cotton batting. I love quilting this feather on borders, fun & free!
Megan's next one is from the American magazine, 'Primitive Quilts'. A few friends got together one night to piece them, you may remember mine from this post,.
Those feathers keep following me!! Megan is going to be adding some wool felt circles to the cream sashing to look like berries on a vine.
Today started out with a beauty of a frost, my little red car was covered in frost, but the sun was shining! A great day to wash a quilt..............................
I made this quilt back in 2007, it is quilt - as - you - go............not my fav technique, too much fiddling around, but I know many people do use this technique & love it, what about you, do you like that method for quilting??
Update on my great nephew
Here he is, now over double the weight he was when born, snuggled under the wee quilt I made him.
My niece manages to express her milk which is then drip fed to him, isn't technology amazing!
