A thoroughly enjoyable quilting experience hanging out with these cute bugs for a few days!
Made by Michelle through the 'block-of-the-month system through her local quiltshop in the south island.
How adorable are these little faces? Michelle gave me free range to quilt how I thought would best suit the design which is both exhilarating and a nervous time with the constant words chattering in my head "I hope she likes it".....................
Anyhow, no need for me to worry Michelle was delighted..........whew! The quilt measures 60" x 84" and Michelle asked for cotton batting. I used a mix of threads mainly Glide in three different colours. After some time pondering the design for the large four- patches I was happy with the design, clean and uncluttered.
A swagged border and leafy vine for the inner and outer borders. I wonder what Michelle's choice for binding will be?
I hope you enjoyed seeing Michelle's beautiful quilt. My next blog post will be another of Michelle's creations too..............until then here are a couple of photo's of my failed attempt at climbing to the summit of Mt Taranaki...............The weather had other plans, but we did get one full days walk in doing the Kokowai Round trip, staying at the historical Camphouse.
One day of full tramping bush and experiencing the alpine then the next day off into the Len Lye gallery in New Plymouth, a cafe lunch then to the movies - 'Hidden Figures'......that was a fabulous movie! Even an evening of fancy dress..........I dressed as a carrot!
