Hello and welcome on this winter Wednesday. The wind is howling throwing fallen leaves into mini tornado's! Enough of the weather, time to share Chopstick's a Jaybird Quilts design.
Kerryn, owner of The Country Yard asked me to custom quilt her sample, yippie this quilt is super nice! Here is the 'before-quilting' photo......................
Kerryn supplied the cotton/poly batting. The quilt measures 62" x 83" and is made using Moda fabric by Sweetwater called "Sunday Supper".
Using Glide thread in the colours 'Linen' and 'Ocean' I set to
Kerryn requested the "Full Quiltmekiwi Binding Service", which is to attach pre-made binding (or I can make it) to the back and bring forward to the front of the quilt top stitching in place, or attach the binding to the front the quilt and hand stitch the binding to the back of the quilt. In this case Kerryn wanted the binding completely attached by machine.
The whole quilt, quilted and binding attached ready to hang in the shop along with fabrics, patterns and kits.
Last week I celebrated another birthday and I was treated to some lovely presents!
Thank you my friends and loved ones. Last weekends tramping was a treat also, after a short drive to Sandy Bay we had a lovely walk through farm land, forest, beaches and Whananaki where we stopped at the local country school to share in a Mid winter Christmas lunch.
Every single time I am out exploring I feel so lucky to be apart of all the beauty.
The last couple of weeks has been very slow progress on my Running Zebra quilt, but I do have a neck and mane!
Linking up with the lovely Linda and Julie for "Sew-Stitch-Snap-Share". Thanks ladies, you are keeping me somewhat motivated!
Thank you for stopping by, happy creating and take time to enjoy the paradise you live in!
