Where has the time gone?

I didn't realise how long it had been since I posted here on my blog.   I have been busy quilting customer quilts as well as drawing and creating things for an exhibition of my work later in the year. 

This lovely quilt was made by Faridah from clothing offcuts - a true hand pieced quilt.  An unusual piecing of hexagons, but when you see it in real life, very rich and interesting.  Although the top was mostly polyester mix of some type ... you know, lots of shiny, slippery fabrics, it was still fairly easy to quilt on the longarm machine. I just had to go a little slower than usual.

Have you visited my other blog One Tangle... I post a new tangle drawing almost every day ... we are up to Day 281 today :)

Cheers for now ... happy quilting ... jane x

White Wholecloth Quilt

 Yesterday I started a Wholecloth Quilt.  Using white Cotton Sateen as the quilt top and backing.   This one is for a King Sized bed, so it is quite large. I am also working on a Queen sized one but am still marking that out.

The first picture is the start.  The second picture shows what I have done on the first run across the fabric.  I will post more when I have done the centre piece which will be a lovely stem rose.

I have to say it is lovely to be quilting free style, just doing what I love :)

Longarm Quilting Starts for 2014

The quilting studio has been cleaned, the machine serviced, oiled and ready to go.  I can't wait to see what lovely quilts my customers will bring me in 2014.

First off is an edge to edge today and then I have a couple of wholecloth custom quilts to get finished. 

Happy Quilting everyone ... Jane xx
