Hello and welcome back to my little sharing space of some quilty pleasure. Today we can share together in two quilts both made by Marcelle, both very different. The first one was purchased through the ever popular 'Block-of-the-month' system.
"In My Garden" is a design by The Birdhouse put together by The Country Yard. Marcelle took her time stitching and piecing this pretty quilt in between other quilts.
Measuring 40" x 46" polyester batting, free hand custom quilting as well as some ruler work using Glide threads.
Silly me didn't take a photo of the back! It was pieced with some of the left over fabrics, I think Marcelle is on a mission like so many of her fellow quilt makers to rid the cupboards of scraps! You will notice in her next quilt she tried extremely hard to accomplish just that.............but failed she tells me!
Measuring a whopping 100" square this and the scrappy backing still has Marcelle left with more scraps!
Marcelle chose and edge to edge design called 'Feather Me' I used Glide thread in the colour 'Military Gold' as it was the best to blend over so many colours. The pattern of the quilt design is called SCRAPPY X PLUS. The backing is delightfully scrappy too!
All this scrappiness made me pull out one of the many flimsys I have lurking around waiting to be quilted.
'Strippy Classic' - although the name Scrappy Strippy Classic is growing on me! I started this back in 2011........it is now quilted, just waiting on the binding and label fairy to swoop down on my house! I shall report back with full photo's when she has been :-)
Last weekend saw me once again head out into the hills and the bush.......Maungatapere Mountain and Crevices.
