When my quilts are completed, I always try to get a picture of them outside, and this must be the ultimate photoshoot - taking photographs of my Seaside Town quilt in my local seaside town! I spent a bright but breezy morning on the beach at Aldeburgh, amongst fishing boats and lobster pots with the north sea in view and my quilt flapping in the wind - it was absolutely the best photoshoot ever! Although goodness only knows what the fishermen thought of me as I draped my quilt over one of their boats! This pattern is by Lynette Anderson Designs, and was bought as a BOM from Cross Patch, an online shop here in the UK. All the fabrics used were also designed by Lynette. The hand embroidery was all stitched using hand dyed Valdani threads, and the hand applique was made using the applique paper and glue stick method, along with Apliquick tools. It has been free hand custom quilted by J-Quilts. Finally it has been embellished with hand painted wooden buttons.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
