Juliet's "A Cloud of Butterflies" in all it's glory! Juliet is a clever designer of paper pieced (foundation) animals & now butterflies. A while back I quilted Juliet's New Zealand native bird quilt, see here, Juliet used 'peppered cottons'. This quilt is made with Oakshott cottons.
Using Madeira poly neon threads with an all over swirl filler for the creamy background & a selection of other coloured threads for the butterfly details, such as their wings & antennae. Quilting over cotton batting & peppered cotton for the backing.
Just for you back lovers out there is the following photo!
Thank you for your custom Juliet.
Next up is a sample for The Country Yard. This quilt is called " Country Animals Quilt", by The Birdhouse. A fun simplistic design, this quilt top can be whipped up relatively quickly. We used a yummy new range of fabric's from Moda called 'Weave'.
Simple quilting, ditch stitching, loops & a word border. Oh & a 'quilted cow tail'!!
We have made up kits, which include the full pattern, all fabric, including binding, just add your machine, thread & time!
back to quilting, happy days to you!
