Marcelle has been busy! Now finished ready for her young son, I am sure he will be happy!
Marcelle chose Matilda's Own wool/poly batting and asked if I could please quilt similar to her other son's Dinosaur quilt, I quilted that back in 2010. Using a Signature variegated thread in blues I zigzagged and quilted curling ribbon, all will look like cool vehicle tracks to a boy I am sure! This quilt measures: 63" x 94".
Below is the Dinosaur quilt, here is the post about that quilt.
There are some fun wee prints in this quilt.
Instead of the curved egded cable, I chose the pointed edge for the border, echoed a couple of times and stippled on the outer edge of the quilt.
Okkie dokkie back lovers that's the backing, isn't it fun! Obviously this is a border fabric that Marcelle must have bought metres of and pieced together to make her backing!
A wet weekend here in Whangarei, a perfect time to finish my daughter's 21st quilt. A bright, rather loud quilt, but this is what she wants and loves, so I am happy to make the quit for her. After all a quilter loves to make quilts for their loved ones don't they!
Wishing you all a happy weekend what ever you are doing.
