This is Nicki's joyous and cheerful quilt ready to be gifted to her first grandchild soon to arrive.
Creating movement and air was my first quilting objective, I believe I nailed that with the swirls. Nicki has done lovely satin stitch on all the applique shape edges.
An echoed ripple works as a nice border finish. Thank you Nicki, enjoy being a grandmother!
Next is Pam's Turn Twenty quilt made from a bundle of fat quarters that called her name and she just had to buy them! Anyone else know that feeling?
These photo's are all taken inside due to the visiting rain......once again! Swirls again but with feathers on the outer edges of the swirls.
All the quilting is done free hand on my Gammill Classic long arm machine. The pattern on the border fabric is a 'stipple' pattern, so after a few moments trying to decide what on earth to quilt out there, I thought use the fabric as your guide, so stipple it was!
Such a pretty backing fabric! Pam asked me to attach her binding so all she needs to do now is snuggle on a comfy chair near the log burner with a nice cuppa and stitch that binding down!
When the sun was out in full force on Tuesday Simon made the most of working on his tan :-)
