My taupe zig-zag quilt for my sister-in-law came back from Carol, the quilter
yesterday and wow what a wonderful job she has done.
With this quilt her quilting was as much a feature of the quit as the applique
and piecing. There was plenty of space for her to fil and she did a stunning job of it.
This is one of the side triangles - I love the way she has imitated the applique
flower and the leaves - so clever.
Then look at what she did on the outside border - so perfect.
Up through the pieced zig-zag she quilted straight lines and in amongst the flowers
a large stipple. I loved these both. I really do not like very close machine quilting on
bed quilts. I like the quilt to stay soft and cuddly.
As you can see above I have started getting the binding sewn on using the same fabric
as the border. I am putting this quilt in the Auckland Quiltmakers Show next weekend
so I have to get going with the hand sewing of the binding and then add a hanging sleeve.
The Auckland Quiltmakers have an annual Show and Sale at the Jubilee Building,
545 Parnell Road, Parnell on Saturday and Sunday 4 and 5 May from
10.00am - 5.00pm each day.
Looking forward to seeing you there if you live close enough. I will take a photo of
the quilt hanging as it is really hard to photograph it at home and will post it next week..
