Is it really almost the end of March? Where has this year gone?
I have been very quiet here on the blog. Life has been getting in the way of quilting … but there is change in the air.
I managed to get up the nerve to do a quilt for a family member.
A gorgeous quilt top, pieced from French General Fabric’s, and a delicious Moda backing.
I was asked to quilt an allover pattern, which was reasonably open. I stared at that quilt loaded, for what seemed like days!
I decided to throw in love hearts, which were part of one of the fabrics. Thread was a variegated, natural colour which both blends and highlights.
Next on the frame is this cute girls quilt top.
For my cousin’s 4 year old, it is destined for her new big girls bed.
Miss J chose the layer cake, an Annela Hoy delight, Posy.
I added some solids, coral, lilac and white. The backing is a gorgeous batik wide back in purples, pinks and apricot. Delicious!
I have decided to play on this top.
First Bump-Bump feathers!
A heart motif for the border.
Micro stippled hearts, in the open blocks.
I hope to get it finished tomorrow.
Glad to be getting back into the saddle!
