I realised that the other day when I wrote about how I label my quilts, I forgot to show pictures of the finished quilts I was labelling. Silly me! Well, here they are.
My scrappy triangle quilt was started just after Christmas last year, during a heatwave. The top was made in a week, while I sweltered at my sewing machine in front of a fan, but it has taken a long time to finish as we had a nationwide white wadding shortage. You could buy natural, but not white. Apparently, the machine that made it had a breakdown, or something. As we had time to wait, Donna, my long-arm quilter, and I decided to be patient. Any creamy show-through behind the white fabric would have been very subtle, but we were in no rush.
This quilt will be going on my bed – in a few months when it is not so hot.
My shirt quilt was started at a quilting retreat. It will be wrapped later today and put under the Christmas tree for my dad.
Both quilts were quilted in all-over curvy designs. I like the contrast of gentle flowing curved quilting lines with geometric patchwork patterns.
