I'm so pleased to be able to welcome to the family.....Freddie! Nope, Freddie is not another little human but my new bigger quilting machine. He finally arrived towards the end of January and we have spent a lovely albeit challenging couple of months getting to know each other.
Like all males, he has been a little cantankerous at times but I think we are finally learning each others quirks and I am excited for all the possibilities he brings. Welcome to the family Freddie!
There are too many quilt finishes to show you everything so I'll give you a quick teaser - you can find many more pictures on my Facebook and Instagram page
I've been lucky to quilt a few
Elizabeth Hartman quilts lately -
her designs are instantly
recognisable and super cute.
I'm making my own
Lepidoptera (butterfly) quilt as
well - one block down, about a
thousand to go.... :)
Another bright, modern quilt
made using mostly Kaffe Fasset
fabrics. This one was fun to quilt
with a bit of custom doodling
around the appliqué and a
circle meander over the
rest of the quilt.
I'm not usually a big fan of batik fabrics but I really loved the ones used in this stunning modern quilt. Quilted with an open design called Fern Gully, it looked absolutely beautiful.
Isn't this just the most adorable
quilt? My customer made it for
her daughter who is an architect.
The colours and workmanship
(workwomanship?!) was beautiful.
I really love this style of quilting, and this was a practice doodle I did to get Freddie and I a little better acquainted. So much fun!
Gardens of a King
Finally I was super privileged to quilt this last one - a year in the making and an incredible amount of work in the piecing. This amazing quilt is on show this weekend along with a whole lot of others at the Seachange Quilters Exhibition in Barwon Heads - make sure you get along!
Until next time, happy quilting!
