Hi there, if you are looking for details of my giveaway you can find it here.

 

Since the summer I've been working on 3 quilts, getting them ready to gift later in the year.

 

Well the first has been completed and gifted and I can show you it here.

This is a lap quilt made for an elderly couple, using a French General Layer Cake (Rouenneries I think!).

 

I've always loved French General fabrics, oh the richness and depth of those reds! Yum!

I used this free tutorial to carve up the full Layer Cake without creating waste.

Some simple organic vertical wavy quilting adds a little movement and lovely texture through all the squares.  Not to mention it being a quick and easy 'go to' quilting method.

The obligatory striped binding finished the quilt off.  I got it labelled and handed over last week.

 

My prayer is that this quilt will bring some comfort and joy to the lovely recipients.

 

So that's one quilt down.  2 more to go!

 

Happy sewing!

  1. The wavy quilting really gives it a presence. I usually go for straight line quilting as I am a quilting coward but this would probably show even less mistakes. It looks fabulous. x
