A Baby Quilt and A Trinket Quilt
Welcome back. Two fabulous quilts up for viewing today, first is Pam's lovely creation for a soon to be born baby.
Pam left the quilt in my hands along with the binding to be attached ready for her to hand stitch to the back.........those were my only instructions! With gorgeous feature fabric that has been framed so nicely I had to custom quilt it.
Organic cross hatching with a fine blending thread keeps the fabric in the spotlight, not the quilting.
There are many things I love about my Gammill long arm machine, just one thing is attaching the binding while the quilt is still on the frame. Pam has made a fabulous job of this lovely quilt.
The next quilt for sharing is Linda's Trinket Quilt. All Linda said was "no brillo pad quilting".
Linda chose wool/poly batting and I used Glide thread. Lots of pebbling and ruler work.
What a pleasure, Linda cuts, pieces and presses with the highest accuracy and care.
I have another quilt to share, but it will have to wait until it's back home. Until then, here's a peep of what's on the machine now!
They say variety is the spice of life......if that's true it's very spicey in my quilting studio!!
