Quilts this week

I didn't have anything to show you last week.  I had been busy but the quilts I was working on were going in a book to be published next year by one of the ladies I quilt for, and so they are under wraps for the time being. They were lovely and I will give you details of the book nearer the time as it will be a must have purchase!

So, this week these are what I have been working on so far.

First is a Kaffe Fassett pattern (I think) and was made by Sue.  She wanted circles on it so I quilted it with Bubbleplay.



Love those cheerful fabrics.  Just what I needed to brighten a rather dull and overcast day.

Next up was a quilt made by Tiina using some French General fabrics.  I quilted it with a fleur de lis pattern called Joust.




 I love this quilt - I had to buy the pattern for myself from her shop.  Even better was that I could buy it as a download, which for my impatient nature was a real bonus.  I have a bundle of French General fabric that I could use to make it.  Another quilt to add to my every growing list of 'quilts to make before I kick the bucket!'

My last quilt to show you is a little house quilt made by Julie who made that lovely quilt using all the Oakshott shot cottons.  She chose a baptist fan pattern.


(The quilt was beautifully pieced and square - not like this photo.  I think I must have taken the photo from the side!)



So, that just about sums up this week so far.  I'm working on piecing a quilt of my own using some of my civil war reproduction fabrics so keep checking back as I will be posting progress so far.

In the meantime, Happy Quilting.

  2. As the partner of the lady with the book coming out, I just want to say that the quilting looked fantastic! The custom quilted one literally took my breath away. I am going to start a new quilt that I've designed shortly and I am SO going to have you custom quilt it! :)
