Hi everyone! I am back quilting for 2013. Well, almost. I am finishing up my own wholecloth quilt before I start quilting the quilts that are here and waiting. I will be finished my wholecloth by Monday, all going well. Here’s a sneak peek.
I have enrolled in university and will commence studies later this month. Consequently, I have halved my bookings for Custom Quilting throughout the year. My regular clients were informed of this via newsletter. Currently, I have only one space left for 2013, in December. I will also keep a small waiting list in case some of my bookings go awry. (Life happens to everyone and sometimes bookings are not fulfilled).
All Over Quilting will continue as normal. I am happy to see anyone with an All Over anytime. The Reward Programme has been very popular and will definitely continue for the foreseeable future.
If you would like to receive a newsletter, email me and I will send you a copy.
Pinetree Cottage Quilting will close from December 14, 2012 until February 1, 2013.
Due to high demand, no quilts will be accepted for All Over Quilting after NOVEMBER 12, 2012.
Bookings will continue to be be taken for Custom Quilting in 2013.
This quilt is quilted using ‘Fire Feather’ by Lorien Quilting. It is a special birthday quilt for one lucky girl so I can’t reveal too much of the quilt here. The thread is a dark grey colour which blends beautifully on the quilt, allowing the focus to be on the gorgeous fabrics.
And a close up.
This quilt is quilted with ‘Ebb and Flow’ by Lorien Quilting using a warm neutral thread. It is a picture panel and pieced quilt made for Trish’s lucky granddaughter.
Today’s quilt is a gorgeous baby quilt. The design used is ‘Wild at Heart’ by Willow Leaf Studios. The thread is a pastel variegated.
The all over quilting is perfect for a baby quilt which will need many trips through the washing machine.
I have splashed out and bought quite a few new pantograph patterns from Lorien Quilting. I am so excited, they are all fabulous!
The patterns are for All Over Quilting. Don’t forget to check out the Pinetree Cottage Quilting Reward Programme. Click here for details.
Below is an example of All Over Quilting. It is a cost-effective beautiful way to have your tops quilted. Call Michele today on 47292676 to make a time to bring your quilt over. General turn around time for All Over Quilting is 2 weeks.
Off to stalk the postman now, the pantograph patterns will arrive mid-week. Yay!
This is Maureen’s Quilt. It is quilted with an All Over called Nouveau Scallops by Lorien Quilting. It reminds me of clamshells but with an interesting feathery interior in the clamshell.
It looks lovely on Maureen’s quilt, don’t you think?
And it’s all mine!!!
I finally put the borders on my quilt and quilted it today. I made the top in class in November. It just needed the borders popped on (easier said than done).
For the backing, I decided to piece in a strip of the fabrics that were used in the top. I like the effect that it has. I quilted with red thread in the bobbin and a taupe colour on top. Above, you can see the backing with the quilt folded on top of it along with the charcoal coloured batting.
The backing is loaded onto my A1 Quilting Machine.
Quilting in progress. I used Swirl and Twirl for the all over quilting. It is one of my favourite designs for this style quilt.
The finished quilt laid out on the floor. It isn’t my favourite quilt of all time (I am still deciding whether I even like it), but it will have a home on one of the boys’ beds, I suppose.
And the backing with the pieced strip in. Is it wrong of me to say that I like the backing better?
This is Lyn’s scrappy quilt. It is quilted in an all over design called ‘Plumage’ by Willow Leaf Studio.
The thread is a medium toned neutral colour, which works very well on the wide variety of fabrics in this quilt.
A Dr Seuss quilt. Perfect for a little boy. Quilted with bright yellow thread and the pantograph design, “Vertigo”.
I love it.
