Quilting for Lynette, Roger, Sue & Veta

Hello Quilty Friends!

It's June, my birthday month - Happy Birthday to me!
Way back when my Mum let me loose on her Bernina 830 to cobble together some outfits for my barbie dolls, did that little me know I was going to grow up to be a quilter? 
Did she know she was going to be a mother of four children & then, four grandchildren? 
I have NO idea - but I am so pleased she let me use her sewing machine.
 I did the same thing for my kids & grandkids, 
maybe one day one of them will be a quilter too?
How about YOU, how did the seed of quilt loving start for you?
Lets see what I have to share from my customers.

 It's free motion quilting in action on a Tula Pink quilt. You might remember seeing the post about this quilt a couple of years ago?

Next is a special commissioned piece. Siobhan has bought several quilts from me, you know the ones I make to sell:Quiltmekiwi Quilt Shop .
So when she cleared out her parents home in Ireland she knew she wanted a memory quilt made from her fathers neck ties, mothers wedding gloves, doilies and furnishing fabrics.
 Siobhan contacted me, asking if I would take the project on. Of course!
She chose the quilt pattern, which we adjusted in size to fit to a wall space. 
 If you are interested I made a time lapsed construction video for my Youtube channel
which I will link at the bottom of this post.

Pieced tablecloth and cushion covers for backing. Hanging sleeve along the top.
