I'm finally able to post about my latest quilting creation, and the timing could not be more perfect as its the Bloggers Quilt Festival.
I am extremely proud of this quilt, firstly, it is by far the largest quilt I have made (quite a jump up from the cot quilt!). Secondly, I lavished love and creativity into this over two months, as it was for a very special girl friend who go married last Saturday (thank you to Andy who listened to all my self-doubt as I made this one). I am fortunate to be close friends with both the bride and groom and was honoured to be a part of their bridal party. It was a lovely day, filled with laughter, great food and wine, a gorgeous bride and an estatic groom. It was one of those very special weddings that you hope to remember all the details of for a long time.
Back onto the quilt. It started with the feature fabric of the dress forms and lagoon kona solid. The inspiration came from Quilt Dad. A really easy pattern to construct and machine quilted by me. I under estimated the number of times I would need to turn the quilt in the machine and it was a sheer persistence that got me through once I had started. I'm back to constructing a cot quilt for some relief. I have a queen size quilt to finish once I complete this one and I think getting it machine quilted will be a wise choice. Enjoy the weekend and check out the creativity at the Bloggers Quilt Festival.
