Today I will show you a four hand quilt: my mother (another patchwork and quilting addict) made the center and I added the borders and did the machine quilting. The quilting thread doesn´t show that much in real, it is an off-white but I manipulated a bit the picture so that it shows better. The pattern is from Bonnie at Quiltville.Thank you Bonnie!
The occasion for this quit is my aunt´s 60th birthday.
She will have a big party in September in Paris and the whole family is invited. A great occasion to meet all the people one doesn´t see so often.
The back of the quilt is pieced on purpose. Well actually I didn´t have enough flower fabric but then I thought that to put a white piece in the middle will enable all the guests to sign as a souvenir.
On Friday I am going to the CREATIVA, a huge hand craft fair in town. I hope I won´t have to take my wallet out too often!
To answer some questions after the last post: The sampler with the set-in stars was made mainly out of japanese fabrics but I added some dress fabrics as well as they are not so expensive!
I don´t know any book from Sharyn Craig, I had a look at Amazon and it seems she does a lot of traditional stuff, so the red and white sunflower could have been from her. I found the pattern in an Australian Patchwork and Quilting Magazine, another great source for traditional Patchwork.
