First customer quilts of 2015
Hello friends and bloggers, today I'm sharing two quilts from my lovely customers. First is a quilt Donna made for her friend using scraps from her 'French Roses' quilt, see here for post about this beautiful quilt.
Donna asked for simple cross hatching, measuring 40" x 48" this will make a sweet present for a special friend.
Donna also requested I make and attach the binding ready for her to hand stitch in place when she received the quilt back in the post.
Second quilt for this year was made by Jill for her Aunts granddaughter.
Jill requested an all over quilting design, 'whirls' seemed fun but feminine also.
I used a variegated thread from Madeira, which has lovely colours and a slight shine, all this over Matilda's Own wool/poly batting.
Today I am putting the final touches on the third quilt of the year, my lovely customer requested custom quilting, this of course is more time consuming.
Of course with the heat we are experiencing here in Northland my 'supervisor' is far too worn out to supervise!
