Thank you to all my customers who are continuing to take the trouble to send their quilts to Fabadashery Longarm Quilting during this upside down 2020.  I am finding that my customers currently have the time to make HUGE quilts, like this amazing quilt made by Pauline.  She has made this orange and turquoise Bead quilt from a pattern she found on Jordan Fabrics website.

I had had my eye on a new quilting pattern, but hadn't justified purchasing it until this lovely quilt came along.  It is called Waves and Pearls, designed by Wasacht Quilting and is now available to all my customers.

Lesley 's Kaffe Fassett Collective fabric quilt, quilted by Frances Meredith at Fabadashery Longarm Quilting

Kaffe Fassett Collective prints n a quilt made by Lesley
The sunny weather continues here in the UK and it is only mid-May.  Here is a lovely summery quilt made by Lesley in bright pink Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics. Beautiful colours.  As usual, it is quite hard to see any quilting on quilts with these busy fabrics, but on this occasion we went modern with a popular digital pattern called 'Modern Curves'.

Lesley managed to find this amazing Kaffe Fassett extra wide pink backing fabric called Fruit Mandala. It was a lovely sateen quality - it would be great for clothing!

Here is another lovely quilt made by Krina using Westminster fabrics including some Kaffe Fassett designs.  Sometimes these loud prints can dominate the quilt, but Krina has used some lovely soft colour combinations to bring it back and make it the sort of quilt you could use anywhere.

I will admit that I was stumped when choosing an allover pattern for this quilt design, but Krina chose this fun design called 'Flowerumpus' and I think it works really well.

I caught a photo of the quilting on the back in the sun which really gives a good idea of what the pattern looks like.

I make no secret  about it - I love scrap quilts.  So imagine my delight when this beauty came in for longarm quilting.  Chris is quietly making her way through a room full of scraps and creating scrappy masterpieces as she goes. She has foundation pieced each block and it looks like she has just had FUN!

Here is a beautiful hand pieced, English Paper pieced quilt which I had the pleasure of quilting for Mercedes earlier this year. I love the colours and was pleased to be wearing co-coordinating  clothes when she dropped it off!  The quilt was massive and used modern fabrics from designers such as Tula Pink.
