I have a special quilt to show you today - Marie's Elephant Quilt which she has made for her teenage grand-daughter, who is elephant mad.  I have shown you a close up of Marie's quilt first, so that you can see the sashing fabric, which features little elephants. Then to personalise it even further, Marie appliqued elephants walking around the border, joined together with some of the fancy stitches on her sewing machine.  I really love quilts which have been personalised for the receiver - they are original and special.  My job was to longarm quilt it to turn it into a quilt.

October Quilt Delivery - Update from Fabadashery Longarm Quilitng

In these confusing times I am pleased to say that work at Fabadashery Longarm Quilting continues.  Living on the border of England and Wales makes the experience even more exciting, but if you have concerns, I am officially based in England and follow those guidelines. Receiving and returning customer quilts via the post has become more frequent here at Fabadashery Longarm Quilting, so feel free to send me your quilts if it is easier and safer for you.

Karen has been particularly busy with her quilting over the last few months and, like many of you, has pieced this LOVELY house quilt.  I love the extra trees and the hexagons around the edge. To spread the love, she scrolled through my blog and Pinterest page to find a heart quilt pattern, this time 'Ginger Hearts' by Apricot Moon. Perfect.
