So this evening I'm hand stitching the binding in place on this beauty that I recently collected from J-Quilts Longarm Quilting. Janette has been working her magic with freehand custom longarm quilting, and it it lovely to have my quilt back home again. This Hearts and Happy Flowers quilt is designed by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley and is made with a variety of techniques - machine piecing, hand applique, EPP, and hand embroidery. I've used Cosmo embroidery threads for the hand embroidery - these threads have a beautiful sheen to them. Most of the fabrics used for this quilt are from the katie Jane collection by Makower UK, and were supplied as a kit from Cross Patch, an online shop wased in Wales, here in the UK.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
