Here I am at last. In all the moving around of the "stuff" I lost my cord for getting my photos onto the computer. Of course I found it when looking for something else!! Isn't that always the way?
Been working hard trying to catch up on my customers quilts. This beautiful medallion quilt of Maria's is a wedding gift and is going off to Australia. Although it seemed like the never ending quilt for a while, I am so thrilled in the end with how it looks. It was only a bit of a struggle because I am still in recovery mode. The colours are superb. My photos are not. Sorry about that.
It was very hard to get a photo in a good light and these first couple were taken at Maria's place when I delivered the quilt. They do show up the quilting well though.
I had to do the on point triangles using Plan C. Plan A & B were too difficult with my smaller 18" throat. I was actually really happy with this plan and it probably looked better that the first plan...lol.
Because the focus fabric featured beautiful leaves and berries, I used these images in the quilting. The feather border uses the leaf style of feather and I was delighted with how it came up. Only the second time I have tried this one.
Using continuous curves on these wee 3" 9 patches made them quilt up a lot faster.
Thanks Maria, it was such a pleasure to quilt your lovely quilt.
One last pic...this is my most beautiful great granddaughter who lives in Perth, Australia. I am praying hard that I will get to meet her at the end of the year. She will be 3 in October and is called Tiana. Dad Wiremu loves her so much and they spend lots of time together.
Take care and I wont make any rash promises about being back....just will do my best to chat with you again soon.
Hugs and blessings
