Customer Quilting

Hello there

Its been a while since I last posted, Christmas has been and gone and I hope you all had a lovely time.
I was very busy with customer quilts in the run up to December.
 I loved this colourful quilt made by Frances who requested an allover design.

 This one was also made by Frances and gave me free reign to do as I wished.

 I kept it simple with some feathers in the center blocks.

This next one was a full custom job and this is all I can show you out of respect for the customers privacy.
 A beautiful memory quilt......

I've also been busy working on Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery quilt. Another cracker but more about that in my next post.
see you then.

Mary's Cushions

Recently I was commissioned to make 12 memory cushions for a family that lost someone very special.
Her name was Mary and she was a lovely lady. I know this because she was my friend and my neighbour. I knew her for a lot of years so it was an honour for me to make these keepsakes for all the family.  They are made from Mary's clothes and bedding.

 Butterflies and feathers had special meaning in Mary's life so each cushion has an appliqued butterfly and feathers incorporated into the quilting.

 The 4 large cushions........
and some of the smaller ones.
I thoroughly enjoyed making these and the family were delighted with their keepsakes.

Wedding Anniversary Cushion.

My sister in law Jackie and her husband Colin will be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary very soon so I thought I would make a little something to mark the occasion.

Fun to make and turned out pretty nice.  Jackie and Colin loved it!
Back to the sewing now.......

Bits and Pieces

I'm always kept busy with something or another.
I had a great time quilting this colourful batik quilt for Gail.

Happy to say Gail loved it!

Here are a couple of other projects I finished recently.
These are placemats for my daughter and her housemates. They are uni students renting their first house this year.

This is a cushion I made for my next door neighbour's birthday.

I am in the process of clearing the decks in readiness for Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilts which always starts around Thanksgiving time.. Looking forward to that!
see you next time.
