I was super excited when Penny asked me to quilt her Sue Spargo quilt 'Cuppa' for her! I thoroughly enjoy quilting these whimsical woolly wonders. The first photo here is the one Penny sent me via our email conversations.
Penny wanted the same sort of 'whimsy- doodling' she had seen I had done on previous wool applique quilts.
Penny did this quilt as a Block of the Month directly from Sue Spargo the backing was included and it's perfect for this quilt, right on theme!
Isn't it fabulous! Penny chose wool batting which gives some more impact. While you can tell I enjoyed myself quilting, these quilts do have their challenges. There is plenty of thickness on the seams, but my awesome machine doesn't complain!
And of course there are the embellishments that need to be temporarily put in their place out of my way! (no embellishments were harmed on my watch!)
The detail of Penny's embroidery was spectacular, do you think we made a good team?
Cuppa anyone??? Thank you Penny, it was a pleasure............................
A couple of weeks back I got a top secret email from a friend asking me if I would like to be part of a 'quilt-hug' for a mutual friend going through a tough time. Yes please I said. When the quilt top was finished by several other caring friends it was posted to me for the quilting and binding.
The quiltmakers got the pattern from Cluck Cluck Sew. I love how they placed the pink hearts like a cross. I quilted edge to edge 'Whisper' as Mr Time was stealing the hours from me and then I finished off with machine binding.
A row of Giggi signature blocks worked a treat for the backing. Wrap it up and send it off with love!!
