Ash sewed this top up a couple of months back and it is due to be loaded onto the frame this weekend. I get a reprieve on this one, as she is quilting it! My job will be to scout, as she is doing a pantograph on it. (I've never done the scout job before, so it will be a new experience for me. Hope I do it right!!) It measures 87" x 88".
Following Ash's quilt, is one I picked up last year on our trip to America. I was in the most amazing patchwork shop just out of Dallas, that stocked hundreds upon hundreds of bolts of fabric, mainly all civil war repro fabrics. They also had many quilt tops hung on the walls, that could be purchased. I spotted this one and no matter how many times I wandered around the store, just kept coming back to it.
I just love the colour combination here. It measures 83" x 108", so I will have my work cut out for me quilting it. I have an idea of how I will quilt the central portion, and are planning feathers in those half square blue triangles, but I've drawn a bit of a blank for that 8" wide border. Any suggestions?
Until next time, have fun quilting!-Julie.
