As soon as this one arrived I couldn’t wait to get at it Marian had asked me for Pebbles, Flowers and Leaves to be quilted in….so this is what I did for her….
First I had to choose the threads very carefull for this one….
threads for Marian’s quilt
Pebbles surrounding the flowers making it hopefully look like a stony path….
..real close up for you of the flower and leaf pattern…
…all flowers done exactly or ‘as near as damn it’ the same…
Side triangle treatment, I let the pebbles drift slightly into this large triangle then did the flower and leaf pattern as done on the blocks…
View of the corner showing the treatment of the small strips around the edge, this was to copy the shape of the flowers in the blocks….
This is what a completed flower block when quilted should look like….
having just checked all the loose ends were cut off hubby spotted this..can you see what he spotted???? Phew, that was close…
I absolutely loved this quilt when I had finished it and really did not want to send it back, but hey-ho I had to. Hubby and daughter also wanted it to keep, so I knew it was OK. All that I needed now was Marian’s confirmation it was OK for her. Which it is, she text me when it arrived to say she loved it. Oh a point of interest maybe for you. I used just over 30 Bobbins of thread on this quilt, really amazing it just ate the thread up, all those pebbles I guess.
Thank you Marian for trusting me with this beauty.
