First up is another quilt Cat made. Made from scraps and made when she desperately needed some 'me time'.
Cat asked for an all over design through the middle of the quilt, then something for the borders.................Through the middle I quilted an all over swirl, inspired by Judi Marsden, then a loose stipple on the spotty border.
This quilt measures 82" x 92", cotton batting and Madeira threads.
Next is a quilt my accountant ask me to make from a kit she brought from Bernina, called 'Our Place'.
Diane's sister-in-law is a quilter living in Australia and has a special birthday coming up, so Diane thought it would be nice for her to receive a quilt all of her very own, as you know, we quilters love making quilts for others, but not so much for ourselves!
The quilt top came together quickly, then I got on with the quilting. I used cotton batting, Maderia threads to feather the black 'zigzags' and the feather border. For the feature fabric's I used Maderia's invisible thread for the winding loops.
For a bit of 'zing' I chose to use a contrasing thread in red for the swirl/feather on the black sashing, I think it brings out the reds in the feature fabrics. After I completed all the quilting I moved on to attaching the binding, then making the label, lastly hand stitching the binding in place.
The quilt measures 58" x 58".
Diane was delighted, lets hope her sister-in-law is too!
Back soon, more quilts to show you!
