Happy Quilting!

Alta's quilt

In between Delia and Christa I had to do another quilt for Alta's grandson. And it was a very happy quilt!

Christa's Quilt

To say that this quilt was a challenge is an understatement!

The Clients' sister gifted her the embroidered centre panel. Christa came to me to help her design and make a quilt of this panel. This is what we came up with. It's meant to fit a queen size bed. It has 12" wide white border and the initial intention was that she would do some applique work on it after I have quilted it. But when this quilt was on the frame I decided to so something different in that border. Needless to say, the quilt had more blue fabric pen marking on that thread!

This is the before pic:


Did I mention that this was Christa first attempt at quilt making? I dropped her in the deep end...with paper piecing! But she did very well.

I have decided on a double layer of batting, 1 x polyester and 1 x cotton blend. The centre panel already had a layer of poly batting behind. So that made for a very puffy centre panel.

Speaking of the centre panel, it was embroidered on a stretch fabric! Oh my word! I could not quilt on it without any pleats or puckers. So I have opted for a 'thread pin' (as I call it) to keep everything in place. I think it looks good.



Sjoe! This was a BIG one!

Happy Quilting!

Delia's quilts

It's been a while since I have last shared a quilt. It's been hectic around here!

I have had the pleasure of quilting 2 of Delia's quilts. She has booked another 4 projects with me for the coming months!

The first one is called Alphabet Soup. The second quilt is Cutie Patootie.
