I love this recent customer quilt, it was one of two, this one has such a fun colourful backing.
I spent part of yesterday rearranging some of my fabrics and checking through my collection of solids…what a surprise to realize how much I have accumulated over the years. Some was gifted from a precious friend who has been along my journey for many years making the up coming plans even more fun.
2022 is coming and before I know it will be here, I am considering goals for myself. I not only plan to work with solids but hope to plan a few leader ender projects and see where that takes me. I have always loved scrappy quilts and I certainly have more than enough variety to play.
How bright and cheerful is this quilt! Halina has been making such fun scrappy quilts and this one was no exception.
I chose the pantograph Hearts and Blooms partially because of some of the blooms found in the fabrics but the backing called fo4 the hearts.
The Flamingo fabric she used for her borders is so delightful! It really amazes me with how many quilts that I quilt that I often have never come across many of the fabrics in them also how rare it is to have duplicate quilts to quilt.
The pantograph leaf pile has been in my collection from my early days of Long-arm quilting and has been a favourite of both mine and many customers. It has such a nice flow to quilt and adds such a nice autumn look.
Millie made this bed quilt as requested by a family member and after discussing the quilting we both agreed that leaf pile was a perfect fit.
As a child we lived in Winnipeg and had oak trees in our yard, I always loved the leaves (especially this time of year) I suspect that is why I love this pantograph so much.
