Velvet, RB&W and a Candlewick Quilt - not all together
This quilt was made by Judy - she doesn't quilt - it is an absolutely fantastic effort. I like it as it reminds me of tartan for some reason.
She picked an edge to edge pattern called "Popcorn" which looks like clouds and a dark blue thread.
The back was stunning - Judy had chosen a dark blue velvet. I was hesitant to quilt it and said I would try. After the first little bit I could see it was going to look great. It loved the stitching. It was pretty yucky to put on the quilt machine and I had a few headaches....but it was worth it.
A little Red Black and White quilt from Sally ... who doesn't love RB&W quilts?
I used a red thread on both the front and back ... look at that back ....yummy.
And a Candlewick quilt which has now winged it's way back to Queensland. I had carte blanche to quilt this, as long as I used my feathers. I chose to do each block with the same four feathers, fitting into the candlewick pattern. I have also stitched around the candlewick to give definition and make it pop. The lace was also quilted down.
One very happy owner = one happy quilter!
Some obligatory cat photos - Jet snoozing on my Thousand Pyramid Quilt that I call the "Red Herring". I quilted it with an edge to edge pattern of fish with a varigated thread and changed the colour out for three of the fish to make them red - hence "Red Herring".
I know, I know - a bit mad! Jet likes it though.
And Merlin found another spot to sleep - a Queen sized bed was not big enough for two of them!
This week I have on the quilting machine a lovely stitchery quilt ... I am able to give my undivided attention to ...loving it!
