Kitty's Sampler Quilt

Hi Again!

Just a peak at what's been keeping my busy for the last couple of days, apart from classes and My Boy...

It's a sample block quilt, 2.3m x 2.6m. I love how she framed each block and then set them with sashing all round. It makes the quilt not look as 'patchy or sample-ry', if you get what I mean. I'm doing an elaborate border design in gold metallic thread, flattening the sashes completely and doing an individual design for each block with a centre of gold and the autumn variegated fill. So far it looks stunning! Very time consuming, but stunning!

Check back in on Sunday for the completed pics.

Happy Quilting!

Hettie's Quilt

Good Evening All,

I have been trying for a couple of days now to load this post but I keep on hitting the peak internet usage time. So here we go again...

I have delivered this Quilt to Hettie a couple of days ago. It's gift to one of her Grandchildren.

 I love the back, it forms a beautiful whole cloth type of design.

And finally bound with black.

I'm pleased with the outcome, and so was the Client, which is most important.
