Margo's Pine Bark Quilt
Hello quilt lovers July is here and so is the wet winter weather. Margo's quilt brings in some sunshine.
Margo made this delightful quilt as a gift for her brother and sister - in - law using Japanese themed fabrics. Margo asked for an all over quilting design and chose "Turkish Tiles" as you will see this design looks very much like a Ginko leaf.
Margo chose Glide thread in the colour 'Light Olive' which picked up the same colour in one of the fabrics and the sashing fabric. Margo supplied her own batting which I think was cotton.
Margo also made two matching cushions, so I loaded them both onto the same batting and backing along with the quilt. Thank you Margo, I hope your loved ones enjoy this fabulous quilt.
Over a series of s-e-v-e-r-a-l months I stitched this cushion for my special friend. A Crab Apple Hill design..................
Knowing my friend loves Tilda fabrics I thought it would be nice to finish the cushion off using two of these prints.
Today I went tramping, a mix of farmland, forestry roads, thunder and lightening, rusty old relics and mud!
