back to nature
Not me, no time for that just yet, but this is the theme of my post today.
Diane has made the first two quilts, both from wolf panels. Now if you have ever worked with panels you will know from experience that these are not the easiest to work with, but get this, these two quilts are Diane's very first quilts! Yes I kid you not and what's more no pattern, not kit, no instructions she made the design and up herself!
Diane chose an all over quilting design for the first quilt which will be a lap quilt for her Mum for Christmas. Diane's Mum is crazy about wolves, so I am sure getting two wolf quilts will fill her need.
Sorry not the best photo, I took this one inside due to the rain outside. Diane chose an all over design for the middle section then I chose a wood grain effect for the black border.
So there you go, didn't Diane do famously!!
Next is a quilt Kim made for her son for his birthday which is soon after Christmas.
Made from a Kiwiana Jelly Roll plus a few extras for sashing and borders. Kim also asked for and all over quilting design with a Maori theme.
Thanks so much ladies, I hope the recipients of these quilts love them and appreciate the time and love you have put into making them.
I had to cut two of the dark red Gladioli and three of the white as the wind and rain had knocked them over, so sad. We are really being hit by some very stormy weather here in Whangarei.
My thoughts have been with my two daughters and granddaughter that live in Australia, you can't help yourself when such tragic things as those that unfolded in Sydney happen so close to loved ones.
