I have recently quilted several quilts that the maker has chosen Cuddle fabric for the backing. This super soft snuggly fabric quilts up beautifully and I happily piece theses and all backings free of charge to for my customers. Why? I first began this service shortly after I began quilting for others as many found it challenging to piece large backings…I continue to do so.
This fun quilt was put together by a Mother and Son project!
The thickness of the cuddle fabric really showcases the quilting design.
How gorgeous is this flannel weave quilt? I love how rich and vibrant the colours are and with the flannel backing and Warm and natural batting it will be a very warm lap quilt this coming winter. Brrr I am not quite ready to say that word!
I chose the pantograph Bayside which added some movement as well as just the right density of stitching to ensure that this quilt will last many years!
Well another snowy day, we woke to another 5”s of very wet snow. While the trees did look pretty, we had a near miss of a snow laden tree leaning on our power line…thankfully with a little help from Erik with less snow it bounced up a bit.
And a little later in the morning…
I am normally a pretty patient person, but the snow is stretching me though there is not a thing I can do about it….we are also waiting for our newest grandchild to arrive any day…I am not feeling patient about that either.
There is also more snow predicted for next week!
I have finished quilting the half square triangle quilt I wrote about in my last blog and have the next ready to quilt. It always amazes me how even in 18 years of quilting for others there are rarely duplicates!
This quilt is spectacularly brilliant! Just what’s needed to work on a gray snowy day!
I am itching to start project three of the Color Collective! It’s called Stellar, designed by Tara Faughnan.
Do you ever find it hard to break up a bundle and start cutting it up, I do but I know that it will will be fun and once I start it will be hard to stop… that might be part of my hesitation.
I love this recent customer quilt, it was one of two, this one has such a fun colourful backing.
I spent part of yesterday rearranging some of my fabrics and checking through my collection of solids…what a surprise to realize how much I have accumulated over the years. Some was gifted from a precious friend who has been along my journey for many years making the up coming plans even more fun.
2022 is coming and before I know it will be here, I am considering goals for myself. I not only plan to work with solids but hope to plan a few leader ender projects and see where that takes me. I have always loved scrappy quilts and I certainly have more than enough variety to play.
How bright and cheerful is this quilt! Halina has been making such fun scrappy quilts and this one was no exception.
I chose the pantograph Hearts and Blooms partially because of some of the blooms found in the fabrics but the backing called fo4 the hearts.
The Flamingo fabric she used for her borders is so delightful! It really amazes me with how many quilts that I quilt that I often have never come across many of the fabrics in them also how rare it is to have duplicate quilts to quilt.
