Laundry Basket Quilt
Hello quilt lovers, nice to have you back for another visit. I have a few beautiful quilts to share with you but not until they are back in the arms of their owners (of course I have posted sneak peeks on my Facebook and Instagram accounts). However the following quilt IS back in it's owners arms so I can share the details with you.
The owner of this beautiful quilt is Kerryn, owner of The Country Yard. A simple yet clever design made up using Laundry Basket fabrics. Kerryn asked for the 'Turbulence' edge to edge quilting pattern. I used Glide thread in the colour 'warm grey' - which is a very soft beige.
Kerryn also asked for the 'Full Quiltmekiwi Binding Service'......................Thank you Kerryn!
With the school holidays in full swing here in New Zealand I am taking a short break from quilting to spend time with my eldest granddaughter, who knows what we will get up to!
While tidying up a few loose ends before she arrives I happen to see Juliet's Sew-Along! Bad news for my Running Zebra...........good news for stash busting! So Zebra aside and welcome 'Kingi' my Kingfisher!
Measuring only 9" square I just love this little fella! What fun I had raiding my stash for this. Because Kingi didn't take long to make he was left hanging all alone in my wee sewing nook (with a very depressed and abandoned Zebra!).............s-e-w............I made 'Olly' the Otter too to keep him company!
Now I know for sure they both will need their mates hedgehog (unnamed & unmade) and fawn (also unnamed & unmade) to join them............the question IS will my main stay of fabrics stretch to the other two critters??
