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!
