Wow, this is a stunning quilt. This is a Trip Around the world Quilt made in Tula Pink solids, pieced by Di. The choice and placement of the graduating colours give the whole quilt a glowing radiance.  The quilt was quilted with 'Modern Curves', a quilting pattern by Anita Shackleford, which you can see in more detail below.

Joanna's 'On Point' Quilt - quilted at Fabadashery Longarm Quilting

This is Joanna's first big quilt.  She started quilting over lockdown and found this pattern on the internet at Angela Walter's 'Midnight Quilt Show'.  The quilt is called 'On Point' and Joanna chose these lovely Tilda fabrics contrasted against a white neutral.

The quilting pattern Joanna chose is called Grace by Anne Bright.  She also took advantage of the binding service I offer, which meant the binding was added and the quilt was trimmed down, ready for her to hand finish the binding.

Sue Watter's Custom Quilt - Fabadashery Longarm Quilting

I have recently had the pleasure of quilting this quilt for Sue.  There are lots of feathers on this one! If you are wanting a custom finish to your quilt, I highly recommend the Hobbs 100% Wool, the loft in this wadding will give dimension to the quilting.  You can often see more of the custom quilting and the work involved if you look on the reverse of a quilt.

Here is a photo of it when it was on my HandiQuilter frame, where you can see I have done my fancy feathers on the border and the quilt had a perfect space for some cross-hatching, which always looks lovely.

Here is another wonderful quilt by Linda which  she created with the assistance of her Accuquilt cutter - better cuts make better quilts, as there tagline advertises.  From the evidence of this quilt it is true.

On this occasion, we used 'Bird's Eye View' digital quilt pattern, designed by Barbara Becker. I like this pattern a lot because the spaces between the lines are smooth and evenly spaced, which has a calm effect on the overall quilt.

Blue and white is always a popular colour choice for quilts. This quilt by Eirwen had fabric patterns reminiscent of  Dutch Delft china and those patterns were the inspiration for the digital quilting pattern.
