Good morning on what looks set to be a lovely sunny day. Having a blog and being a professional quilter is a constant game of catch up! A bit like keeping up with the washing when you have four kids..........only far more enticing and exciting! I do wonder if it's worth my time to keep this blog going as Facebook & Instagram are more & more taking the lead for the quick visual fixes in our busy days. However I do find it a great place to direct new customers to browse my work.
So without much more talk here is the first of Linda's floral creations in all their splendor.
Linda asked for custom quilting but to leave the crazy patch & machine embroidered rows as Linda wanted to do some hand quilting, other than those instructions she left it to me.
And the red ribbon goes to.............me for remembering a photo or two of the back!
Next for Linda is another pretty floral creation.
Linda asked for an all over meander for this quilt.
When Linda posted me her quilt tops she also sent a vintage sheet for each quilt and asked for cotton batting for both quilts. I'm sure if you keep an eye out over at Linda's blog she will share both quilts with binding on at some point. Thanks again Linda, it's always a pleasure to quilt for you.
On Sunday I popped down to see the Auckland Festival of Quilts, strangely enough it's held in Auckland! I had entered my Mystery Medallion Quilt, no prizes for me. Although I had hoped it would have sold......now I need to find somewhere to put it?
Two of my lovely customers entered their quilts. Margo won a merit for her quilt in the 'Large quilts multiple makers'.
