Loving scrap quilts...........................................
Fleur has been a quilter for many years & with that comes bucket loads of SCRAPS! So Fleur wanted to get a hold on those scraps........so what's a quilter to do? Make a scrap quilt of course. They are true trips down memory lane for the maker & for those who look on. As the quilter I saw many fabrics that were familiar to me.
This quilt measures 96" x 96", cotton/wool batting & I used Aurifil's new variegated poly thread.
Fleur is a hand quilter & I can tell you her quilting is stunning! So what an honour to be commissioned to quilt for her.
Very simple quilting of straight lines & a four petal flower, I hope the following photo's will show the quilting.
I wonder if Fleur has any more scraps??????????????????
My bloggy friend Karen from America is a wonderful long arm quilter & pattern designer. Karen emailed me the other day telling me of her new pattern 'Pumpkin Spice' for sale on Craftsy
Please pop over to see Karen here to see her pattern & quilting.
I have some fun quilts coming up in the next few weeks, so keep posted.
