Hello Everyone! Look what I picked up from my long-arm quilter on Tuesday afternoon! I wasn't expecting them to be ready so quickly, so this is a very pleasant surprise. Thank you Rita for all the excellent work you do for me. Both quilts are original, meaning I didn't follow any patterns for them, just made a few blocks and started playing with placement and fabric choices.
I originally wanted to have this quilted with a fan-shaped pattern, but that wasn't working out, so decided to go with the diamond-shape...a classic. I wanted an old-world feel for this quilt to complement the muted tones of the Robyn Pandolph Canadian Cottage fabrics.
Tried to get a better shot of the quilting and the thread, a lovely dark green, but this is as close as I could get without making everything blurry.
Here's my second project done. It's really a shame my skills as a photographer are so bad because the colours on this quilt are really quite rich...the brown is a lovely deep chocolate brown, but everything just looks washed out...(sigh).
Really love the swirly quilting on this one, done in a pink variegated thread. So fun!
