Wow, how time flies! Looking through my photos, I have realised there are quite a few quilts that I haven’t shared here recently. So a little re-cap…
I have made several baby quilts for customers lately. I get quite a few queries about quilts, but tend to refer any commission work larger than a baby/toddler/lap quilt onto other local quilters. However, if I have the time, then I do like to make up smaller quilts for clients, especially when they have seen fabric online they want to use.
The first one used a couple of Posy charm packs to make a toddler size quilt. I love the colours in this range. The stipple quilting was done by Carolyn Clark, my local long arm quilter.
I like to use larger prints on the back, and this one from the range was perfect. It features a girl reading, and I ordered it in as it reminded me of my daughter. The binding is a co-ordinating mint green floral.
This quilt was commissioned for a baby boy by a customer who loved the Mod Century prints.
Again, using the big print on the back works well – makes it reversible. Straight line quilting was requested, and I did it in a grey.
…and this one was for a customer who wanted a baby quilt for a girl, that wasn’t pink. As with the grey/green one, she chose the backing fabric first, then matched the prints for the patchwork.
We chose a stripy binding on this one.
…and finally. I was asked to design an appliqué cushion for a couple getting married. The groom works within the mountain biking industry, so we came up with the idea of a tandem. It is fusible appliqué, edged with a zig zag stitch in a toning thread. I felt pressure to get the scale of the bike correct!
The photo has been taken before it was quilted, and their name at the bottom has been cropped off – I do like to respect privacy and all that, hence I also never show the stitched labels I put on.
So, I have been a little busy!
Hope you have enjoyed the photos. x
