Val brought me this gorgeous Oakhampton quilt, it's beautiful fabrics and colours just talk to me, grey, peach and teal blue with a cream background...
It's a Somerset Patchwork pattern by Karen Styles. 
All freemotion hand guided with a double wadding and a combination of cream, grey, khaki sand and invisible threads...
I love the way it turned out and so did Val....

A Fusion of Quilts

A lovely feminine quilt from Lynda, a layer cake design quilt in lovely soft tones, quilted with a design named Picturesque.

Ishbel is a very good customer who pieces in a wide variety of styles and colours, this one is modern in design, I like it and quilted it with a modern type of digitised pattern named 'hot stuff', I love the texture....

 Ishbel's second quilt is a maple leaf design pieced with Stonehenge Gradations fabrics. I quilted it with a digitised design by Darlene Epp named Trillium.

Margaret pieced this Jelly Roll Race type quilt from her stash for a wedding gift, I quilted it with a design named surf.

Alison brought three quilts but I only seem to have photos of these two, the first looks like a sliced layer cakes design and is quilted with crystal maze, the second is lovely pale pinks and lemons, a simple, feminine traditionally pieced design quilted with  a tisket a tasket.'

Mountmellick number 2

I've never met Sarah, her quilt arrived in the post. Sarah made it partly while living in Australia, then finished it while living in New Zealand and now it’s finally going to be hanging on Sarah's wall back in England, it was quilted here in Scotland, so it's been well travelled. 

This is a commercial pattern by Di ford and the second I've quilted of this design, I used monopoly invisible thread and a trilobal thread in a khaki colour.
The photos show before and after, enjoy....
