This has been what feels like to me a 'epic' quilting job! Some quilts seem to spend a long time on my machine, while others breeze through without so much as a blink of the eye! So without further a do........................perhaps a drum-roll would heighten the excitement!
The details to the best of my knowledge:
'Veron's Garden' - named by me as this was Veron's creation.
Machine Applique - batik fabrics
Matilda's Own polyester batting
90" x 102"
Free hand custom quilting by me.
Feather border inspired by Jamie Wallen
I felt the need to keep the quilting classic looking, feathers, cross-hatching - with a trellis look and micro stipple to help give some areas some 'pop'.
Veron once again gave me a creative licence over this quilt, for that I am ever so thankful to her for her trust and friendship.
Now a snippet of the delicious back!
So that marks the last of Veron's quilts ( for now), if you missed the last three please see *here* - *here* and *here*.
Last week I posted off a birthday present to my friend Julie, I had managed to make two small handmade items for her, one I forgot to take a photo of and this:
A freebie pattern from Moda Bakeshop called "Moda Love". I had made myself one over the Christmas period but in Kansas Troubles fabrics. They are both made with Mini Charms or 2 1/2" squares. The one for Julie was from the leftovers of my Angel Story quilt.
Just thought I'd pin Julie's one up in the same spot mine hangs for the photo.
Simple straight lines for the quilting and machine sewn binding and just like that it's done!
|Measuring : 12" x 12"|
From the same pattern you have the choice to make the mini -from a mini charm pack( 2 1/2" squares), a medium sized one - from a charm pack (5" squares) and a nice large one, just like this one I made my sister last year using a Layer cake (10" squares).
|Measuring :73" x 73"|
These past few weeks the love story continues aboard the Biscornu.................................
