Michelle's Gingerbread Village
Hello again for the second time this week! I am back to share Michelle's second quilt that I custom quilted for her.
Once again Michelle gave me free range on this quilt. What fun I had, have I said I love my job?
Measuring 62" x 72" purchased as a BOM through Shabby Fabric's Michelle asked for cotton batting.
All the seams were pressed open so unfortunately I was unable to stitch in the ditch, something I always feels needs to be done for custom quilting, it sharpens the whole look of the quilt, from applique to the piecing.
Even though this is a Gingerbread Village it has a wintery look to it so I figured falling snow would look good.
A holly leaf border worked so well.............the backing is holly fabric too!
Seen enough? It's a beauty of a quilt, has me hankering for winter! It's coming right? Meanwhile with all the quilting going on there has been an on looker from the stairs..........what IS he thinking?
