EILEEN’s QUILT

Like buses I managed to get yet another William Morris Quilt to do. This is Eileen’s quilt, as you can see it is larger than the previous WM Quilt I did slightly. Eileen requested Flowers, Butterflies and Dragonflies to be put on in the quilting…..hmmmmm very strange, the past three quilts I have done had requested Dragonflies, is a pattern emerging here I wonder!

Anyway I chose a variegated thread as Eileen suggested – a subtle one – so subtle you can hardly see the quilting in the centre of the Quilt, so I went to town in the borders, sorry Mr. M but I wasn’t about to compete with you in the middle but the borders – they were mine. I quilted the flowers and butterflies in the main part of the Quilt in a barn raising effect, the final round being leaves to tie in with what I was going to do in the border.

Managed to get my hand in the corner sorry…

this shows you what Eileen used for the back of the Quilt, more William Morris, she said she was getting fed up with it so joined squares of it for the back, great idea…

Many thanks Eileen for letting me loose on your fabulous Quilt, I thoroughly enjoyed doing it for you, only sorry it took me so long as I was ill for a while, but you stuck by me and waited. Thank you. I hear you have bought more WM Fabric – hahahaha

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.
