This is Jean's beautiful quilt that she began in a class taken in Palmerston North in 1998!!! Now that is a year or two ago. It took me some time to get my head around the plaids and strong colours and exactly what to quilt where. However, in the end I am pleased with the result and Jean is too, which is the most important thing. A happy customer is my aim after all. There are lots of photos as it was quite a large quilt...72 x 90 inches with lots of ditching to do and I found it hard to choose which photos to show you. I do have to apologise for the quality of some of them...couldn't find my camera and used my phone.
Lots of applique blocks too with some buttons and domes already sewn on, so had to be a little careful. Loved the block of bugs, hehehe.
Mr Scarecrow puzzled me for a while, then my friend Catherine came calling and flung around the fact the I should just do some pumpkins in it. So here you are then Catherine, I have done pumkins in the sashing and one or two flung around the background among the small loops.
This watering can was a lovely block. Jeans applique was very well done. The apples were cute too.
More plaids to play with!
I was really pleased with the way this Wheelbarrow full of vegetables came up.
The birdhouse blocks looks really nice with the buttons on the flowers...just had to be extra careful going around them. A lovely block...here's another view...
Did these lovely leaves around the sashing. Was hunting for inspiration and found this tutorial on Pinterest. The quilters name escapes me, but I will hunt it up and let you know.
Along the bottom of the quilt was this great animal collection.
So there you have it...the grand tour around Jean's beautiful quilt.
Thanks for stopping by and look forward to seeing you again.
Take care and blessings to you all.
