A few weeks ago I delivered this quilt top to Janette, who has a longarm quilting studio in East Bergholt. It has been ready for a few weeks, but I wasn't able to drive following surgery, and then Janette was on holiday, so I've been patiently waiting for her to return! On Monday morning I drove over to collect it and WOW!! I was really thrilled with what Janette had done! I was going to post some pictures once it was completely finished - with the binding AND a label, but was so excited that I couldn't resist sharing some pictures of it now! We chose a beautiful mottled purple Moda extra-fabric for the backing and a purple quilting thread to match. This will be the quilt that my daughter Alice takes to university with her in September to remind her of home. All I need to do is sew the binding on, and it will be finished! I had originally bought this as a kit, containing all the batiks and the pattern, and although I knew it was by Timeless Treasures, I couldn't remember the name of the pattern - but when I posted some pictures of this quilt on some FB groups that I belong to, a lady very kindly told me this kit was called "Rhythm and Blues"!! Originally I was going to use a batik for the binding, but now I'm thinking of binding this quilt using the same fabric as Janette used for the backing, as she's kindly given me the left-overs and there's plenty to use. And I think the purple would really set this off a treat! I promise to post pictures on here when it all done!!
