I thought I would kick off the year with this super bright quilt made by Jennie.  Using Kaffe Fassett and Westminster fabrics, this pattern really shows them off to their best.  These fabrics seem to be ever popular and my longarm customers keep bringing me lovely colourful quilts.

As I have said before, these quilts are not about the quilting, but the colourful fabrics and any quilting is going to take a back seat.  This means that pretty much any digital pattern will look great on them and on this occasion we used 'Bubbles' by Lorien Quilting.

Happy New Year - Dates for Quilt Drop Off

Stars for Epiphany Quilt
Stars for Epiphany Quilt
With everyone's Christmas quilts done, the Christmas break was a a time for me to quilt some of my own quilts, including this one 'Stars for Epiphany', which seems appropriate for today. 
Today I have also been updating my diary with the local quilt shows which are happening in 2020.  This year seems to be a BIG year for quilt shows, and many customers have already been in touch asking for their longarm quilting to be done for their quilt show deadline.  So if you require me to quilt a quilt for you, please get in touch sooner, rather than later.  Here are some dates I am taking in quilts
