A busy week

Here are some customer quilts I worked on this week.

This is one of Julie's quilts.  It is made of shot cottons from Oakshott.  Such a simple block but the quilt seems to glow because of the sheen of the cottons.  She chose a simple daisy pattern for the quilting.







This is also a quilt made by Julie and she chose the 'ornamental maple' pattern that I did on my swoon quilt.  It echoes the maple leaves on the French General fabric.





This quilt was made by Pat who was trying to use up some of her scraps.  She chose a heart pattern called 'sweetest'.







I even managed to finish my 9 patch quilt using a fair amount of my bright and cheerful scraps.



I have just sewn the blocks side by side with no sashing.  I love all the 'borderless' quilts that are appearing all over blogland at the moment so decided that was the way to go...









I had some bright Madras checked cotton that I used for the back and added a plain yellow binding.  I have put this quilt on our bed for now and am loving it's bright cheerfulness in a week where we have had the worst September storms for 30 years with severe flooding here in Yorkshire.


I quilted this with a pattern called 'alfresco'

That just about sums up my week.  Happy Quilting!
