Hi and welcome to everyone visiting from the Blogger's Quilt Festival! I hope you enjoy looking around my little blog and come back and visit again soon. My finished quilts are in the tab at the top of the page if you want to see some more of my projects!
This autumn, I don't have a new quilt reveal to show you so I thought I would share one of my favourite quilts from the last few months with you.
This is my Across the Sea quilt - from the quiltalong I hosted with my good friend Jennifer. This was the first quiltalong I've hosted and I really enjoyed it and was so thrilled to see everyone's interpretation of our pattern.What makes this quilt even more special is that it is made for my new niece and is ready to be delivered next weekend at her Christening.
Jennifer designed the front of this quilt - the cross blocks are simple and striking and the scrappy border really ties it together, I love it!
I designed a "floating crosses" back pattern which lines up with the front crosses to make quilting it even easier.
My quilt was made mostly with some FQs from "Just Wing It" by Momo for Moda, with some additional fabrics added in to vary the colour palette. I love how colourful it is, and that is is nice and girlie without being too pink!
I free motion quilted it myself with a meandering stipple.
And its bound in a lovely small scale red and pink apple print. Perfect!
I do love this quilt and hope you do too. If you're interested in making it, the instructions are all available in the Quiltalong page tab at the top of my blog and let me know if you have any questions! Its suitable for all ranges of quilters, even total beginners and there is lots more info in our Flickr group too.
