Hello and welcome to February! The year is into fifth gear already! Well it certainly is for me.
Today I share the lovely quilt Margaret made, it is a design by Michelle Hill, William Morris inspired called "Dear William".
Margaret wanted her applique to really show but also wanted some knockout quilting to complement her beautiful machine applique. After several discussions we came up with a plan.......to go for it!
So I went for it! Many hours of quilting and who know's how many metres of thread! Tiny detailed pebbles with the odd swirl here and there and that was AFTER the stitching around ALL the applique.
When that part of the detailed quilting was complete I moved onto the borders, which is actually one piece. The border is a busy fabric so I went with piano keys quilting and "e"'s for the outer pink which seems to frame the quilt rather nicely.
Back - lovers - hold - onto - your - hats! You are going to love the back!
Margaret was delighted with her quilt and said we made a good team! I am more than happy to agree with her.
On a non quilting front I wanted to share my frequent dilemma when sitting outside for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner................................
