I wanted to share with you a quilt that my aunt recently finished. She has been working on it for over a year now. Her local patchwork shop, Buttons and Bows at Beenleigh QLD, runs Janome classes to give you confidence and practice in using all those extra features on your machine; and you don't have to have a Janome to attend.
Last year instead on working on one small project each month they decided to do a quilt, and Chris incorporated extra bits into the quilt so the ladies attending could use more of the extra features on their machines. One such thing is a cranberry fabric in this quilt, it has been stitched both vertical and horizontally with a twin needle (two different coloured threads) AND then stitched with a fancy stitch. The result is stunning and everyone is amazed when my aunt tells them it was a plain piece of cranberry coloured fabric. oh, and the borders; aren't they just what the quilt needed! She even made her own bias binding.... ALOT of work in this quilt. I have NEVER done ANYTHING like this, such patience. Well done A!
This quilt was in Nundle, my aunt got it out to show Kerry; then she took it to Honeysuckle to show Kim. What a fabulous response! She has made it for my Nan, her mum, who has been asking where is the bag A was going to make for her. Well A had to fudge a bit because she didn't want to say she had bee busy working on the quilt as it was a surprise.
