Updating.................


Hi there friends, just stopping by to catch up on some quilts I haven't shared with you. Marcelle is our  first featured quilt maker today.


I love this quilt! The simplicity and gentle colours appeal to me. Marcelle wanted custom quilting for this quilt. I quilted a contemporary modern background filler, then quilted circles and a few pebbles in 'framed off' areas here and there.




Marcelle machine blanket stitched the orange peel/petals I then stitched and echo stitched as well ribbon candy on most petals, for interest I added a maze type pattern on just a few of the petals.




The thread used for the pebbles, circles and stitching on petals was Omini by Superior a lovely soft teal sea foam colour.



The second quilt Marcelle made was for a friends 10 year old daughter, it is a pattern from Moda Bakeshop called: "Love Layer Cake". Marcelle tells me she just used her stash rather than a layer cake.


When Marcelle sent me through the link for the pattern after I asked where the pattern came from, I laughed as I had only the week before downloaded the pattern from Moda Bakeshop for myself!


Marcelle asked for all over quilting (edge to edge). I used "Marmalade" pantograph pattern which is such a versatile pattern. The backing for this fresh happy quilt is white flannelette.


My next customer also gave me two quilts, one cot panel, aren't they marvelous for a quick present! The second quilt was a Spiderman quilt, wow! So much fun to quilt!


Liz asked for all over quilting for this soft baby boy quilt, I used "Turbulence" pantograph pattern.


 The back a lovely oh so soft creamy flannel, that as well as a wool/poly batting the intended baby will be snuggly and warm.



                                              Wise wise words from Spiderman!


Liz asked me to custom quilt this bordered panel for her three year old grandson. I was keen to play!


I wanted Spiderman to look like he was springing out of the quilt, I out lined him, quilted muscles and bought some of the background to life, without dense quilting, it's nice to keep kids quilts soft and pliable.




Loving the spiderweb border! I used the fabric as my quilting guide for the outer border. Lets hope Liz' wee grandson loves this quilt.

Thanks so much ladies for entrusting me with your lovely quilt tops.

  8. Your quilting is lovely Leeanne, and you must get the "must do some quilting bug" out of your system with finishing all these quilts for people, even though you don't make the tops. Still a great feeling of achievement I'm sure!
