My latest project is finally hanging on the wall of my sewing studio. This pattern is "Bountiful" and was designed by the Australian designer Gail Pan Designs - and as usual, this supplied as a kit from Cross Patch, an online shop based in Wales here in the UK. Julia, the oener of Cross Patch, always puts such gorgeous kits together, and this one was no execption! I used an 50wt Aurifil thread in a mid grey colour for all the machine piecing, and as I showed in a previous blog post, this was machine quilted very simply using an assortment of quilting threads - including a mid grey Aurifil 40wt thread, a variegated blue and a variegated gold King Tut thread and a variegated cream Gutterman Sulky thread. This was hand appliqued using Apliquick tools and applique paper - if you're not familar with this method of applique, there are lots of videos on YouTube that you can watch.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
