One of many pluses.
Leonie's second born daughter Heidi loves Zebra's & Orange, so for her fifth birthday Leonie made her a quilt that she loves!
Leonie asked for all over loops & the odd 'Heidi' worked into the background of the pluses. I used a Gunold variegated thread. For the pluses Leonie wanted echo's in the pluses with straight lines, again I used the same thread. Warm & natural 100% cotton was Leonie's pick for batting.
A fun, funky, fresh quilt for an Orange loving girl, that will see her through many years of snuggling.
I couldn't not show you the back, as the back has nearly as much sewing as the front! Many seams & lots of care & love.
One HUGE plus on the back!!! Look at the corner........................................
Raw edge appliqued "H*E*I*D*I" label on the back of the quilt, how cool is that!!!
What was a special treat was I got to meet Leonie & Heidi, as they came to the quilt show to pick up the quilt. I just love meeting my customers. Because I have customers all over New Zealand, I sometimes don't get to meet them in person.
You may remember the quilt Leonie made for her eldest daughter that I quilted, see here.
Speaking of pluses, I got into the garden this morning to do some pruning. The last of my roses, hydrangea & wisteria. I was wondering what I was going to do with all the cuttings, then the squirrel in me jumped up & said to save them all for kindling for next year. So that's what I did, little piles ready to be put into old banana boxes & stored away to dry.
After some pruning in one garden I found a wonderful volcanic rock, just sitting there waiting to be discovered! Who else likes these lovely rocks in their gardens?
