I have been busy quilting secret Christmas gifts for customers which I haven't been share with you, but this week I have been quilting this Rail Fence quilt by Anne. It is a quilt for her guest room in her favourite blue colours.  At 97" x 97" it filled up my APQS longarm quilting frame to the max, so not a quilt you would want to squeeze under your domestic machine!

She wanted light quilting, so she chose a delightful all over edge to edge digital design featuring a dragonfly motif called 'Dragonwings' by Apricot Moon, one of my favourite designers.

It was backed with Daisy Tea Dyed extra wide fabric by Nutex,  Hobbs Polydown as the wadding, and stitched with 0842 Gold Isacord.

I was able to do a quick turnaround on this one, so Anne should be able to get it on the guest bed in time for Christmas.
