Some finished customer quilts.......
This was pieced my Nicola, and had some gorgeous appliqued birds and hand embroidered panels. Some of the pieced squares in this quilt are only 1 inch square. I used a lemon thread and "Debs swirls" design as an allover pattern. I made sure first if Nicola wanted the applique to be quilted over or around before deciding that she was happy with an allover design. IIt turned out great, adding lovely subtle texture and finish to the quilt, without overpowering the applique.
The next quilt was pieced by Jackie, and is a gift for her daugher who loves dragonflies, so she had already chosen the "Dragonfly pond" design from my website before posting the top to me to be quilted. My camera seems to hate photographing purples and never makes the colour look true to life. This has been pieced with 9 patch blocks and snowball blocks, and I have quilted it with a dusky pink/mauve thread which was chosen as an inbetween shade between the purples and pinks and the creams in the quilt. Also taking the backing fabric colour into account which was a dusky pink/plum.
A lovely design which turned out beautifully.
