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!!


  1. Beautiful baby quilt pieced by Pam and the quilting shows it off!!
    Also love the Trinket quilt it certainly pops with your quilting just beautiful. Excuse my ignorance but what is brillo pad quilting?
    Also the (spice) quilt looks scrummy.......
    Happy quilting xxxx

  2. Both really stunning & eye catching quilts Leeanne. The new one you are working on looks interesting too. Your job is certainly never dull !!

  3. Oh me there's still something really appealing about two colour quilts, and this one is a stunner! Love your quilting on it too! And isn't that "i love you' bunny fabric just the cutest!

  4. Amazing quilting on the two finished quilts Leeanne! The peep of the quilt ready for you to work your magic on has me excited - all those lovely KF fabrics - can't wait to see the full quilt quilted up.

  5. Great job on each quilt, but I have to say the red/white is simply stunning! Linda's accurate piecing is showcased by your precise quilting. A perfect union!
    Looking forward to seeing what you do with that last quilt.

  6. Like Kerry I am also wondering what Brillo pad quilting is? Maybe it is something we need to learn? The red and white quilt is quite stunning... really highlighting both the piecing and the quilting... well done!

  7. Lots of fun custom quilting here Leeanne. Linda's quilt is simply beautiful - red and white are always a great combination to start with and I'm sure she will be delighted with how the blocks are highlighted! And lucky little baby having such a lovely quilt to start life with :-) And I'd love to know what Brillo pad quilting is too!

  8. I love the wavy cross hatch, I could probably manage that quite easily on my domestic machine. Have to ask - what is Brillo quilting? So looking forward to the big reveal of that Kaffe quilt you are working on.

  9. I very much like your pattern it's beautiful,thank for sharing good i dea !


  10. Nice post!!

    GRS shoes offers Mens shoes in varied designs and colors.

  11. I have to ask too..Brillo pad quilting? Is it lots of tiny scribbling? The quilts are beautiful and once again your quilting is stunning Leeanne. You turn the quilts into works of art. That last tease photo looks interesting, great colours.
