It's not a quilt until it's quilted................................
The following three quilts are now quilts! All three customers asked for all over quilting designs.
First up is a quilt created by Christine for her ten year old granddaughter.The pattern came from a book called " Jellyroll Inspiration", compiled by Pam & Nicky Lintott. The pattern was designed by Joanne Ridley, the design is called " May Flowers".
Christine was running out of time to get this quilt finished in time for her granddaughters birthday, so she chose all over quilting instead of the more time consuming custom quilting.
I quite fancy this quilting, called "Camellia's". The quilt measures 59" x 68", the thread is a soft pinky/mauve Glide thread. Christine had the prettiest backing.
Thank you Christine.
Next is Suzanne's Swoon quilt. Suzanne was keen to have a Baptist Fan quilting. Facebook followers will remember my sneak peeks.
Isn't this a lovely quilt! So fresh and revitalizing. I used a white Madeira poly thread top and bottom.
Thank you Suzanne, no doubt we will see this lovely quilt featured on your blog when you have completed the binding.
Next up is Elaine's group Row by Row quilt. Made several years ago as a group effort, Elaine was keen to get this fun quilt quilted!
Elaine was happy to go with an all over quilting design, there is a lot going on in this quilt, so it is probably the best choice.
A fun quilting design called "Splash"............seems appropriate for a beachy themed quilt. The backing looks good too, a soft blue flannel. Thank you Elaine, enjoy!
A few weeks back I was very fortunate to win Gail Pan's latest Christmas Stitchery book!! Whoopwhoop!
I am a big fan of Gail's designs, I have made several of her quilts and stitcheries, so I was delighted to win her book. Gail signed my copy for me, thanks Gail! I look forward to stitching up some of these beautiful designs.
Simon has been up to his usual mischief, sleeping in places he's not meant to, scratching, just the the usual stuff to get our attention. In the following photo he was having a cute moment sitting on the stairs.
The next customer quilt I am working on is a custom job, very pretty.........I am still working on the ditch stitching.
Until next time......................................
