CLAIRE’s QUILT

I know Claire from way back on the PP Forum. She found my Blog and sent an email to ask if I would quilt something for her. Well when I saw it how could I resist? It was beautiful..

Claire's Quilt - 1

I asked Claire what she would like me to quilt on here and she requested Butterflies and Flowers in the middle on the Batiks and Feathers on the Black border. Brilliant. So here it is finished, I have heard from Claire and she has told me she loves her quilt, always good to hear 🙂  —- Here is the quilt pinned up ready for quilting, then the screw broke on my sewing machine and I had to put it on hold for a while until I received the new screw, it took a while, Claire was very patient bless her.

When I got to the border, I thought if I did all the quilting in black it would have looked a bit dismal, so I took the liberty of adding a few Butterflies in the variegated thread I had used in the middle…

The two shorter borders I took the liberty once again of doing some ‘stylised’ C’s and ‘feathered’ them – C for Claire, just a bit of fun…

There we are then another Quilt done and another happy customer I am pleased to say. Many thanks to Claire for her patience in the fairly long wait for her quilt and for trusting me with it. I loved doing it for you Claire. Enjoy using it.

Hmm what do you say about yourself? I am a Quilter. I just love to Quilt for myself and others. I love fabrics and threads, simple things, but they make me very happy.

  3. Absolutely stunning. I loved Claire’s quilt when I saw a photo on PP and I knew the addition of Jan’s quilting would be suited to the gorgeous quilt top. I love the bold colours and the different quilting styles that you’ve done Jan…..If it needs re-homing Claire, I’m first in the queue please. x

    Beautiful quilting and lovely ideas. Love the thread you used instead of black all through!

    • Hi Carolyn, lovely to hear from you and I now have you on my blog list, your blog I mean. I generally answer these comments by email unless peeps would rather I did on the page. I did a survey a while back and folk preferred email. Do let me know though. Hope you are still postcarding. jan x
