Three from Auld Reekie....

ts always lovely to receive packages of quilts from Edinburgh.
Ishbel's lovely blue pinwheel quilt, looked beautiful quilted with 'Picturesque' and a cream thread, the design showed daintily on the backing fabric....



Kevin From Fabric Focus sent down a couple of shop samples one of which is a children's panel for a cot quilt, I quilted this one with 'Animal Crackers' a lovely design with monkeys, giraffes, lions and elephants.


I love this bright quilt, I want to call it 'pole dancer', it's quilted with 'Surf' and black thread....




A Trio of quilts.....

Here are a few quilts that went home a few weeks ago...

From Maureen and Doreen...

Firstly Doreen's, made from a Jelly Roll plus backing and contrast fabric, quilted with cream thread and a design named Florence.





And then Maureen's 'Topsy Turvy' applique quilt , quilted with green thread and a design named Trillium....




Barbara's lovely blue and cream quilt was destined for a wedding gift, Barbara requested custom work but gave me free reign. I chose feathers, straight lines and some feathered rosettes in the centre....
I used cream and blue threads to match the fabrics, it turned out beautifully....

Zeynep's Stonefield



Lots of photos today, this lovely  Stonefield quilt was beautifully made by Zeynep. The pattern is by Susan Smith an Australian designer.

Zeynep has customised the pattern adding a centre block as a memorial to the families beloved dog and lovely little house blocks that are so quaint, lookout for the puffin and snowdrop blocks.....

Lots of photos in varying lights that speak for themselves really .... enjoy

Guess what is on my machine just now, yes another Stonefield quilt, they are quite intense to work on but there'll be another finish in the next few days.....

Chocolate Leaves, Sweetshoppe and Mid Summer.....

Here's a little catch up, two from Fiona in her usual choice of colours, all warm and homely.

The first is a star type sampler quilt with lovely rich browns and reds and a modern twist for the backing, quilted with Chocolate Leaves and Khaki Sand thread.....




Fiona's second quilt is is a lovely house block with applique panels running through, quilted with Sweetshoppe using again Khaki Sand thread, that colour is so versatile.....


 



There's a sneak peak of a Stonefield quilt underneath....


This lovely colourful quilt is huge and believe it or not is a beginner quilt and a kit quilt, I'm betting it took a whole lot of determination to get that one finished, well done Jane!
Quilted with Midsummer and white thread.
I also added the half binding all ready for Jane to hand sew to the back of the quilt.....
