This is the rather lovely quilt that I delivered back to its owner at the Chilford quilt festival on Friday last week.  It was the first time that I had met Jenny, although I have quilted a previous quilt made by her which she sent to me in the post and that I returned in the post . As we were both headed to Chilford anyway, it saved on the additional postage cost.  It was so nice to put a face to a name too.
 
Don't you just love Autumn coloured quilts?
 
 
The pantograph chosen for this quilt was "Debs swirls" and I used a copper thread, which blended in beautifully across all the rich colours.  I can hardly believe this is only her 2nd quilt made.  It was as square as can be, and laid perfectly flat.

              I just love the swirly designs.
 
 
And can you believe that this was only her 1st quilt made?  I quilted this for her earlier this year with the "Hearts 'n' roses" design.

Hi Kay, Yes I did bind this one for my customer, I attached my customers already prepared binding, and then hand basted the binding down in preparation for my customer to hand stitch on the reverse on this one. Thanks Nicola, Jenny did love it I am pleased to say.
