February the Month for Valentines

Standard

February is the month for Valentines, and here is a quilt we did late last year. It was a shoebox shuffle, some of  you may know what that means. Each member of a quilt group puts together a shoebox with patch patterns, fabrics and designs and then swap around for a few months. This way everyone gets to make a patch, the shoebox eventually returning to the owner to put together.  A nice touch is when a book is added for the quilters to put notes, comments, weather reports etc., and these make wonderful reading as time goes by.

This single size quilt was simply quilted with a freehand meander and hearts, only through the white open areas, not crossing the appliqués. Very pretty.

“Kaleidoscope”

Standard

At 47 x 74 this is a single bed size.

Pieced in blue, turquoise and mauves with a white backing.

The client originally wanted blue thread top and bottom, to show the design on the reverse, but this was changed to white which actually helped to enhance the design.

Each spiral was highlighted using a groovy board spiral set on the centres.

A plain meander was used to link each spiralled centre with the next.
