Quilts and MORE quilts!
First up, yesterday was The Country Yard's annual exhibition.
What a lovely way to celebrate being open another year and a special way to thank our loyal customers. Customers that have either completed a Block of the Month, kit or purchased fabric and patterns from the shop can exhibit their finished quilts. Every year we receive a wonderful selection.
With weather that couldn't be more perfect and live music from a local Dixieland band called "Red Arrows" to entertain while strolling in the country garden and lovely snacks to nibble on.
I was commissioned by several of my customers to either custom quilt or create an all over design on their quilts.
Suz won viewers' choice with her Berries and Bluebirds, a design by Gail Pan with Suz having her very own spin on the original design.
It was a fun day!
Next is a quilt that I started at retreat last year. I finished the top, then took over a year to get around to quilting it!
Made using one layer cake ( Simple Marks by Malka Dubrawsky) and a moda solid. The Pattern is called 'Urban Birthday' by Jenny Pedigo from Sew Kind Of Wonderful using Jenny's unique quick curve ruler.
I custom quilted this as a birthday present for my brother. I used Aurifil's variegated poly thread quilting leaves and a wood grain type of design and a simple stipple over Matilda's Own wool/poly batting.
Thanks for stopping by, wishing you a magic weekend.
