Hi all, I hope you are all enjoying your stitching in this cold wet weather.
I recently finished a quilt adapting a pattern by Kellie from Don’t Look Now called my own Lilly Pilly This pattern was so much fun. As a hand sewing project it was great to always have something to do when I attended sit and sews at NOTYQ I love hanging out at my quilting Guild chit chatting and learning and sharing new skills.
The quilt really came together with some great background quilting. I felt that the appliqué could really pop out with the dense quilting. Now I am not one to just follow a pattern. A patchwork pattern to me is simply a starting point…so I added two borders so that the quilt was framed and gave me the opportunity to use some different quilting treatments.
I love doing this style of doodling quilting as the movement and detail makes the most of modern quilts with a high proportion of background fabric.
Back to my quilting machine now as the christmas orders are pouring in.
