A friend recently celebrated a notable birthday and because her friends know who much she loves Golly's they each made a block.
Each Golly block was raw edged applique using either machine or hand blanket stitch. Once all the blocks were made, they were pulled together with cheery bright 2 1/2" squares. Then a lovely aqua/jade sashing and border fabric.
My contribution was the quilting.
I quilted a continuous curve in all the squares and a swirl in the Golly backgrounds except for the centre block, here I wanted a point of difference in the quilting so I quilted pebbles with the odd small swirl.
The border was treated with swags and finished off with fine picket fence quilting to make the swags stand out, which I did so continuously like the curves on the squares. Taking a little time I can usually work out a continuous quilting plan to minimize stops and starts.
Of course we quilters are NOT fans of embellishments and buttons, so these were left until after I had finished the quilting to be attached.
Di will even enjoy the back of her cute quilt................................................
Kim whipped up this lovely fun quilt for one of her grandchildren who was turning one.
Silly me forgot to take a photo of the whole quilt! Anyhow the centre is one whole piece of fabric, then Kim had attached borders in some coordinating fabrics, then had me quilt an all over quilting design called "Jungle Vines".
All this using Fantastico "Desert Sage" thread over Matilda's Own polyester batting.
