A Quilter's Quilt

Sharon (who made the quilt in my previous post) brought me this quilt more recently and I really loved the fabric in the centre. 

This saying one is my favourite.  I am lucky my husband loves to cook and does most of it.  

I quilted this with an allover freehand leaves and loops design.

Blue Nine Patch Quilt

This traditional quilt in soft blues belongs to Sharon and it also is another one I quilted last year.  It is designed by Sandra Boyle.

The batting was hobbs polydown and Sharon wanted the quilting to be light so it was soft and a little puffy.

I ditch stitched the blocks and quilted a feather wreath in the plain blocks.

Blue Round Robin Quilt

This is a Round Robin quilt from London Quilters brought to me by Judy last year.  (I am am sorting though some old photos).

I like how the colours in the centre really draw the eye.

I quilted it with feathers, CCs, pebbles and a lot of ditch stitching.

Lone Star Quilt - Number Two

I also quilted this Lone Star quilt last year, made by Leanne.  I liked this Lone Star variation as it gave me interesting areas to quilt.

Lone Star Quilt - Number One

I quilted this Lone Star quilt last year, and have only just got around to posting it.  It was made by Claire, and she gave me free reign to quilt it however I liked.

Because the green background areas were so large, I broke them up into smaller areas like I was adding borders around the quilt.  I CCed the diamonds on the star.

Circles and Feathers

I am a bit of a sucker for reproduction fabrics, and love the fabrics in Alita’s quilt.

Quilted with feathers, continuous curves, and a background fill of small curls.

Second International Round Robin Finished

This is the second year that I have been involved in an International Round Robin with three other quilters - myself and Bronwyn are Australian and Kathy and Lori are Canadian.

We have just completed our final round and the quilts have all been mailed home to their owners.

In this Round Robin, in the first three rounds the members made blocks in sizes of their choice and in the final round, the quilt was put together however the person chose.

You can see photos of earlier rounds on Kathy’s blog –

This is my quilt, put together by Lori.  I love it!  Especially the border – thank you Lori.

This is Kathy’s quilt, put together by me.

This is Bronwyn’s quilt, put together by Kathy.

And this is Lori’s quilt put together by Bronwyn.

You can see the final quilts of our first Round Robin here.

Thank you ladies for another very enjoyable Round Robin, and I look forward to next year.
