William Morris Quilt made by Eirwen and custom quilted by Frances Meredith

This is another quilt which got finished thanks to first COVID lockdown, a William Morris masterpiece made by Eirwen.  Each block has been carefully machine appliqued and a custom quilting finish was really the best choice for a detailed quilt like this.

I can't resist taking photos of custom quilted quilts when they are on the frame and the sun shines across them to highlight all the stitching.

Farm Fresh Strawberry Quilt made by Kath, quilted at Fabadashery Longarm Quilting

 

Kath's 'Farm Fresh' Jelly Roll quilt
Sometimes the fabrics in a quilt are the key inspiration for the quilting pattern.  Kath made this Jelly Roll quilt using a fabric range called 'Farm Fresh' by Gingiber (Moda).  Amongst the cows and the chickens, there were some delicious strawberries.  This was our prompt and I was able to source a lovely strawberry quilting motif called 'Strawberry Patch' designed by Hermione Agee.

I think the strawberry is a great pattern for a quilt - who doesn't like strawberries?  Here you can see it stitched out by my APQS longarm machine, on the back of the quilt.

Jane is one of my regular longarm quilting customers and she always sends me an interesting mix of modern and traditional quilts.  Her most recent quilt is her version of the 'Night Sky' quilt by Jaybird Quilts, which I have custom quilted.  You can just about see the background fill on the black fabric!

This is a quilt I have recently taken off my APQS longarm quilting machine.  It was made by Jennie who used 'lockdown' to raid her stash and make up some bright, cheerful quilts.  With fun quilts like this, you can have fun with the quilt pattern too.

I am a member of Wye Knots quilt group based in Monmouth, Wales, and over lockdown we managed to make several group quilts, which are all going to charitable causes.  This 'Wacky Stars' quilt was the first one we made and it has been donated to the Wales Air Ambulance for them to auction and raise funds.  It is such a fun quilt and I hope it raises plenty of money for such a great cause.
