Custom quilting an Irish Chain and an all over design.........
Soft and subtle is how I would best describe Michele's Nine patch Irish Chain. Soft creamy white and pastel little boxes of colour!
When I was last in Hawera in the Taranaki I stopped into Michele's lovely little quilt shop called "Wildflower Creations".....no website but you can find her on Facebook. While there she gave me two quilts to take away to be quilted, this one for custom and the other for all over quilting.
As you can see I did the required ditch stitching, then some orange peel on those nine patch blocks then some of my custom feathers on the plain blocks.
The back was interesting, the orange peel design created circles, which looked like bubbles or polka dots!
The second quilt Michele gave me is a pretty 'Shabby Chic' quilt, I quilted an all over pattern called Camelia's.
A soft and feminine quilt, it would look pretty draped in a room with the lovely creamy rustic furniture we are seeing more and more these days.
Thank you Michele, here's hoping you have many years of enjoyment from these pretty quilts either in your home or used as props in your lovely shop.
The sunrise driving to the Farmers market Saturday morning, a different story on the way home! A dark moody black sky.
For those days when the sun is out, you may as well be out letting it warm your back!
