Today I thought I'd post a couple of pictures of a quilt I recently made and quilted for my daughter's 18th birthday. I picked up the fabric for an amazing $2 per metre! It's quilted with a variegated King Tut and has a wool/poly batting. My daughter says it's so warm and quite light even though it's a fairly large quilt. I made the backing from left over pieces of the fabric. The quilting design is one I did freehand after doodling with heart ideas. I'll have to improve the way I post pictures, I always find it tricky to get the pictures and words in the right arrangement in relation to each other!
It was my birthday yesterday and my children gave me a book by Barbara Brackman that I have always wanted. See photo. I'm going to make a cup of tea and have a good read and see what lovely projects I can dream of making ( to add to the list!).
I have a couple of children's knock about quilts to do for a customer, they are a bit unusual as they are tied in the centre of the quilt and I am only quilting the border of each one. I have finished the boy's quilt and will post pictures when I have finished the girl's one as well.
Off to make my tea and enjoy my present.
Bye for now,
