February already?

February already, how did that happen?
I've been quilting up a storm as usual. First up is Irene's quilt, a simple but well executed applique block with cornerstones and sashings strips. I quilt triangular digitized designs in the corners of the blocks and followed up with freemotion hand guided quilting in the sashings and also in the wide white border, yes that's a freemotion, handguided design. White thread on the white fabric, navy thread in the sashings and cornerstones.

This lovely lilac, aqua and pink quilt in Kaffe Fasset was made by Joy. We decided on a quilting design named Surf. It  looked fabulous on this type of quilt with busy fabrics both front and back, I used an aqua thread which blended nicely.

Kevin from Fabric Focus in Edinburgh asked me to quilt these two class samples, remember you can contact Kevin on 01315583888 or find more information here . You can take a class with Kevin at his shop in Edinburgh to make this sashed hexi quilt on April 9th, details can be found on the Fabric Focus website under the Sewing Classes page

I quilted a digitised design in the blocks with freemotion, handguided quilting in the sashings and borders all carried out using black thread.

Another small quilt from Kevin received a digitised edge to edge or pantograph treatment, this cheerful flowery design is called Morning Light...

I'll be back very soon with some more finished quilting designs...
