    2 quilts finished

    A friend asked me to make 2 quilts for her new house.

    She chose the fabrics, the first is Ambrosia by Bernatex. The pattern was based on yellow brick road. I spent a lot of time unpicking (reverse sewing) on this one. I had all of one of the blocks back to front, sigh. Then after I added the borders realised I was 2 rows short, why did it take a photo for me to notice that? I sewed 2 more rows, matched up the borders with additional fabric and started sewing back on only to find out I forgot to allow for the inner border, noooo. This quilt had the nickname of the quilt from hell. A friend from my quilting group quilted it with her long arm. I am very happy with how it turned out. My dog Bonnie likes it too.

    The second is very different, lots of bright colours my friend chose, bright and happy if not a bit eccentric. At first I did not like working with such a mix of colours but I am pleased with it now it is finished.

    Yah the photos loaded the right way up, thanks Jean.

    Thanks for looking.

        Very nice, you have a lucky friend. Do our friends really know and understand that the quilts are labors of love?

          I'm more partial to the first one - with all those blues and that awesome backing - but they are both beautiful and your friend should be quite pleased!!

                      Those are both very nice quilts in great colourways. Bonnie looks so relaxed there soaking up the sun.

                        Wonderful! The blue reminds me of water, I love it, and the patchwork reminds me of a picnic, love that too.
