With the possibilities offered by my APQS computerised quilting machine and the range of amazing patterns available, sometimes it can be overwhelming to choose something suitable for a quilt. When Natalie arrived with this beautiful pinwheel quilt which she had made for a friend it called for something more traditional.

The prints are all 1930's reproduction fabrics in lovely bright colours and after some deliberation, Natalie chose a traditional Baptist Fan pattern which was a utilitarian quilt pattern used a lot in the late 19th century.

Here you can see the Baptist Fan pattern stitched out using the digital pattern whilst it was on the quilting frame. We used a Glide thread in an off-white 'Linen' colour, which kept the overall feel of the quilt fresh.
