ordered on 2012, made in 2013 – lollipop II quilt

My first “big” quilt of 2013 is finished. It is a custom order from a client in Germany that liked my original Lollipop quilt, but wanted it wee bit larger and in orange/purple hues. I have suggested to use fabrics from the Notting Hill collection by Joel Dewberry in magenta. Wonderful fabrics and the colors are just fantastic. Size : 153 x 213 cm / 60″ x 94″.

This time it was straight line quilting in horizontal, vertical and diagonal directions using the walking foot. A nice to change to free-motion quilting.

The backing and binding are finished using in the same orange fabric.

I have made 2 blocks from the Swoon pattern. They will make a cushion cover for my Mum.

Looking forward to the weekend – lots of time to sit at the sewing machine !

Happy sewing, Barbora

first stash in 2013 has arrived

First stash in 2013 has arrived : 2 thick envelopes came from Hawthorne Threads. I have ordered the fabrics way back in December and I am so happy that they are finally here. Take a look on the wonderful colors and designs from Alexander Henry Fabrics Collection (somerville study, sloane and sienna) – these fabrics are just the right ones for quilt backings. As soon as I saw the “somerville study” with all the books in the shelves I just could not resist.

And the last photo shows the Notting Hill Collection in magenta designed by Joel Dewberry and has a total of 12 different fabrics. Once more the colors and designs are so fresh and bright. This stash is for a custom quilt and I shall start working on it right away!!
