Remember this Quilt ? I started it back here.
Have I ever told you how much I love my long arm machine Quilter?!? I use Kim Bradley & she is fantastic!!
I love going to her place & checking out whats going on in the world of quilting - I learn so much.
On the particular morning I went over to Kim's with this quilt top - I was rather hazy.
It was the end of a long school holidays, I had work piled high & sleep was much needed.
I also wasn't entirely convinced that this was one of my greatest quilt tops, It seemed a bit plain and I was concerned that your average long arm quilting was going to make it naff.
I expressed my concern to Kim - she always has an answer!
On the machine behind me was a quilt being done with a new long arm pattern......Owls!
I love Owls!
Its the sweetest pattern ever & it gave the plain simple quilt top the perfect lift that it desperately needed.
Very happy indeed
The backing is an IKEA text print - love it and very reasonably priced.
The centre fabric is from CLOTH
and the rest is a mix of Lotta Jansdotter's Echo range, Sweetwater, Denyse Schmidt & My text fabric on spoonflower.
Its really light and fresh in its colours & design. I seem to be doing a lot of pinks & yellows together.
In other happenings - below we have some sneaks at other work I'm in the midst of
I'm really enjoying working with the new range from Lotta Jansdotter "Bella" - Due in store in August 2012.
Miss 5 is home sick "Helping"
and I'm testing out a template I have designed with some of my spoonflower fabrics!
all Systems go in our house!
I'm also enjoying the cold but sunny Sydney weather.
