Quilts Quilts Quilts

 This is a customers quilt ... lots of Japanese kimono fabrics ... with the beautiful "Ellie's Dragonflies" E2E pattern - I love how they flit all over the quilt.
 This is one of my own quilts - the batik strips of one colour are very washed out - it is a really vibrant quilt.  Easy to put together
 I quilted it with "Gothic Vine" E2E pattern with a lovely verigated thread.
 The backing fabric is also Batik - gorgeous fabric that I purchased from Brenda at Widebacks (I have Widebacks sample book and can order any of Brenda's delicious fabrics for you).

 This is Nancy's quilt - one of my customers.  Nancy hand pieces her blocks then gets me to choose the sashings, borders and put it all together.   Nancy thought her blocks were very very bright ... but was so pleased with the final quilt - it has come up beautifully and I must admit there was a bit of mathematical thinking to get them into order.
Look at these beautiful fabrics.   I believe Nancy purchased them at a recent quilt show and then more of the fabric from Fresh Fabric in Deloraine  Well worth a visit, especially if you are headed off to the Tasmanian Craft Fair on the first weekend of November.   I have put in a few links for you to check out.


The other information I would like to tell you is this:   The next Island Quilt Show is on Friday 27 to Sunday 29 April 2012.    If you are interested in my quilting a Custom Quilt for you to enter this show before March 2012 - you NEED TO BOOK NOW.   I will only be quilting Edge to Edge / Allover quilting for 2012 unless you have booked it in this year ... as I need to have a break from Custom Quilting and be able to get the E2E Allover quilting out in a couple of weeks and not be held up by the custom work.   Customers I have quilted for in the past four years have had very nice wins in the Tasmanian Island Quilts Show ... and two of them have been chosen to go to AQC as the pick of the State in 2010 and 2011.  

Happy Quilting for now ... Jane x
