Earlier in the year I was given two quilts by my friend Debbie to quilt for her –
This was the one I saw first and I just fell in love with it, I had it pinned up on my wall for ages before deciding how to quilt it…..
This is the second quilt, Isn’t it just fabulous, all hand embroidered on Linen. Now that scared me as I had never quilted on Linen before but I knew just the person to go to to ask for help and advice – Kelly Cline Quilt Artist
It was a while getting both of these quilts done for Debbie, but she has them now thanks to her friend Pat who hand delivered them to her this past weekend. I am pleased to say Debbie likes them and has given me permission to post them on here.
Below are some piks of work in progress, at the end of these are the piks Debbie did for me of the completed Quilts.
Before and after quilting pictures –
Almost the completed Quilt – [the borders you cannot see]
Following are piks of the Butterfly Girl – around the Butterflies I did the dreaded Vermicelli but threw in some ‘ghost’ butterflies of my own, hope you can see them flitting about –
Around the girl I quilted different patterns to make more texture and interest for the quilting, and basically cos I enjoyed getting carried away on this one. Round the girls legs I started to elongate the circles so they look hopefully like pebbles she is standing on
The completed Quilt.
Thank you so much Debbie for letting me do these gorgeous quilts for you I enjoyed them so much and was loath to let them go. Also thank you for permission to show others.
