Quilt for baby and quilt for 21yr old.................
My lovely customers have been busy creating fabulously fun funky quilts.................come see!
Marcelle is a generous quilt maker, often squeezing in quilt making for others between all her motherly duties. This happy quilt made from scraps is for a friend of a friends grandchild.......I hope I got that right Marcelle.
Marcelle requested cross hatching for the nine patch blocks then "something for the start blocks".
Those star blocks got stars! As well as a cross hatch in the middle square for continuity with the ninepatch blocks.
I used a sherbet coloured Madeira polyneon thread for all the decorative stitching over a polyester batting.
The baby about to receive this snuggly colourful quilt is sure to feel the love and thoughtfulness Marcelle has stitched in each seam.
Next up to share is Noeline's fun giggle time quilt made for her 21yr old granddaughter, come and share in a few laughs with me!
Apparently this block (before quilting) is Noeline's granddaughter to a 'T'............I must admit it rang true for me too :-)
Ain't that true!!
Noeline asked for simple quilting and no quilting over the cartoon blocks.
Looping meandering swirls and hearts seemed just right for this fun loving young women. I used a soft mauve Glide thread over cotton/bamboo batting.
Ribbon candy on that lovely stripey border worked a treat, the pink sashing has ditch stitching either side.
This photo was taken at the end of the day so unfortunately it makes the quilt look dull, which it is anything but dull!
One more block for a laugh..........................
Last Friday late afternoon hubby and I took a drive out to Ocean beach.
We climbed up and up, see those dots on the beach? They are people.
From up top we spotted a pod of Finns.......possibly dolphins. They were too far away to get a decent photo with my phone. Google Ocean beach and the images you will find are breath taking. On the way home we stopped for fish and chips, a lovely treat to end a pretty winter day.
