Chilhowie Mystery Quilt 2022 - Bonnie Hunter

 

Chilhowie Mystery Quilt, Week 2
Chilhowie Mystery Quilt, Week 2
Several of my customers take part in Bonnie Hunter's annual Mystery Quilt.  I am no stranger to them myself and have decided to take part this year.  As you will see my colour scheme is slightly different to Bonnies, choosing red, white and two tones of blue.  We have had two clues so far, so not too late to join in. You can find all the details at Quiltville's Quips & Snips!!: Chilhowie Mystery!

Sue's Football Quilt - the Final Score

Sue's Batik Football Quilt

Once you start a trend making quilts for your grandchildren, then they will ALL need one. Some are easier than others to devise a quilt for, but sometimes it can be the quilting pattern which can personalise the project.  Sue made this quilt for her granddaughter using batik fabrics.  This sort of quilt can take almost any digital quilting design, as the fabrics are quite busy and blend nicely. A quick flick through my Novelty catalogue and we found the ideal digital pattern - footballs.

If you are looking for something a bit different to add some personality to a quilt, enter 'novelty' in the search box on the right hand side bar and you will see some of the other interesting patterns available.

This quilt was made by Linda for her son, who is a big Football World Cup fan.  She fussy cut some England Team fabric bought at Doughty's and used her Accuquilt cutter to make us the stars.

Claudine's Red, White and Blue Hourglass Quilt (Football Mania!)

Claudine's Red, White and Blue Hourglass Quilt

The 2022 World Cup is currently in full swing, so I am going with the flow to show you some football inspired quilts, which some of my longarm quilting customers have made.  Firstly, here is a red, white and blue Hourglass Quilt, made by Claudine for her football mad son.  Can you work out his favourite team?

Claudine was very clever to combine her love of American reproduction fabrics with rogue fabric scraps from her son's Liverpool Football Club duvet! (you may need to zoom in ...) I helped to finish it off with this digital longarm pattern called Cosmos.

Olwen's Rainbow Quilt

'Bubbles' quilting design by Lorien Quilting

I always enjoy doing quilts which have been made using a fabric with a different texture - they seem to bring out the quilting pattern to its best.  This shows Olwen's Rainbow quilt which is made from an Indian cotton.  With the Hobbs Polydown wadding, the Bubbles quilting pattern shows up beautifully.
