A few weeks ago I dropped off 4 quilt tops to Janette, who has a longarm quilting studio, and left her to do something wonderful with them. Well, she certainly didn't disappoint - they are STUNNING! She had emailed me some photographs of them earlier, so I could have a sneak peek at them - well, the photos are fab, but seeing the quilts properly was even better.....
.....each quilt has a different quilting design, and I have had a busy few weeks choosing binding fabric, and this weekend I have been busy getting the binding sewn on. This shows the beautiful quilting design that Janette used - it's called Bush Berries - and it looks just perfect with this layer cake quilt - you can see it a bit more on the back, as I chose a white tonal fabric, and Janette used a soft gold thread for the quilting, which just blends really well.....
.....and I chose an aqua spotty fabric for the binding - it was another fabric from the Bliss range. This is going to be used alot over the winter months as it will be perfect for snuggling up under while watching TV. Now I've already blogged about the Bliss Layer Cake quilt and the batik quilt - pictures Butterfly Garden and Tail Feathers will be coming up sooooon :)
