Malvern Quilts UK Show 2022 - Fabadashery Longarm Quilting Customer Quilts

Porcelain Petals Medallion Quilt made by Alyson Wells,
custom quilted by Frances Meredith at Fabadashery Longarm Quilting
Yesterday, I had a wonderful day at the Quilts UK Malvern Quilt Show organised by Grosvenor Shows.  I spent most of the day chatting to friends and customers who I know, but couldn't wait to see the competition quilts on display in the marquee at the back of the Hall. Amongst the competition quilts were some quilts I had help to finish for my customers, some of which had been waiting since 2020 to be displayed.  Firstly, this gorgeous red, white and blue medallion quilt made by Alyson, which won a  Judges Merit rosette, you can see more details in an earlier blog post.  Below you can see the other quilts by Eirwen, Christine Porter and Carol Allen.

Sheila's Batik Quilt, with Easy Peasy Quilting

'Easy Peasy' Digital Quilting pattern, 
designed by Hermione Agee
You know I love to share a photo of a quilt on the frame, with the sun shining across the quilt, showcasing the amazing work my APQS quilting machine does for me.  Here is today's offering, Sheila's Batik Stars Quilt.  Sheila has dipped into her batik stash of this one, using the colours from the border for the stars and a subtle range of neutral batiks for the background.

The quilting pattern is 'Easy Peasy' designed by Hermione Agee.  It is quite a small pattern, interlocking, which gives a soft allover texture.

Here is a beautiful blue and white quilt made by Eirwen. The feature fabric included lots of flowers and we took that for inspiration for the quilting pattern and used a very pale neutral thread - Glide Warm Grey 4 (I use a lot of it ...)
