Here’s what I worked on this week…..
This one was pieced by Margaret. It’s been a long term project and now it’s finally ready for binding and to be handed over to the recipient. I gave this one a simple freemotion quilting job hoping to show off the appliqued flame border off. This quilt is rather large so I had to fold it in half over my fence to try to get a reasonable photo. It looks even better up close and in person.
After working really hard on Margaret’s quilt I decided to do just a wee one. This next quilt is one for Quilts for Comfort. The quilt top was donated by my friend Anne. Between us we managed to produce this …..
In this case I chose a nice fine grey thread and one of my new quilting designs called Sun Scallop by Hermione Agee. It looks fab. Now all that’s left to do is hand finish the binding.
It’s been pretty busy in happy longarm quilter land. Here are a few quilts I have been working on lately.
The first quilt was pieced by Sue using a selection of Batiks. Sue chose a quilting design called Dragonflies by Vickie Malaski and a nice fine Flush colour thread which sits nicely amongst the Batiks. I think Sue will be pleasantly surprised when she collects her quilt in a few days.
The next quilt was pieced by Brenda. These large star blocks form a fab looking quilt. Brenda chose a quilting design called Swirling Feathers and a nice fine Flush colour thread. I think the recipient of this quilt will treasure it for many years to come.
And my most recent effort was pieced by Gail. This Film at Five quilt is a super quilt to Use up Your Scraps. Gail chose a quilting design called Music Notes by Dave Hudson and a lovely fine grey thread. I love this quilt and you can find the tutorial by Wedding Dress Blue here. Here’s how Gail’s quilt looks now.
Here are two more quilts which I worked on this week.
This first one was piece by Mrs. Dent for her granddaughter. Mrs. Dent left the choice of quilting designs up to me. So I chose the Rose Garden quilting design by Apricot Moon and a lovely fine ecru colour thread. I’m very pleased with the final result.
And the second quilt belongs to Viv. The quilt top is actual a panel with Hollywood posters printed on it. Viv chose a quilting design called Sparkle by Patricia Ritter and a lovely fine Airforce blue thread. Have a look at this fab little quilt….
It’s Monday and I kicked off my week by longarm quilting Brenda’s Log Cabin quilt. Brenda chose one of my favourite quilting designs for this quilt. Buzz by Hermione Agee is a super funky quilting design. I used a lovely fine rich sand colour thread to stitch it out. I love this quilt.
Well as always it’s been a pretty busy week for this longarm quilter. I’ve work on Susan’s cheerful Disappearing Nine Patch quilt. Susan used a variety of Batiks to piece this one. The choice of longarm quilting design was left to me. So I chase Kashmir by Hermione Agee and a Dried Sage colour thread.
I love Susan’s quilt. I think this Disappearing Nine Patch block would be a great stash buster or a great way of using up the content of your scrap basket.
Now we move onto Mary’s quilt. Mary’s used a variety of creamy colours to piece this one. Doesn’t it look lovely and soft? Mary chose the very popular Hearts in Bloom quilting design by Irene Steele and a lovely fine creamy colour thread. I’m sure the recipients will treasure this quilt for many years to come.
I spent several hours longarm quilting Nancy’s gorgeous quilt last week. Nancy used Petra Prins fabric to piece this beauty. Once again it was left up to me what to stitch on this quilt. So I went shopping for the perfect motif to stitch in the plain blocks. So I chose Floralish by Barbara Becker and a fine cream colour thread. Here’s what Nancy’s quilt looks like now….
Here’s what I’ve been working on today….
This is Mary’s quilt. Mary has combined two of my favourite things; log cabin blocks and using up scraps. Mary left the choice of quilting designs up to me. The only stipulation was that she didn’t want the longarm quilting to be too dense. So I selected a design called Exquisite by Hermione Agee and I used a fine rose colour thread to stitch it out. I think Mary will be very happy with this quilt.
