Some Recent Quilts

This quilt was made by Pat Middleton's mother in the 70's, and the fabrics in it are much older than that, being remnants from a clothing factory. It was a joy to quilt examining all the old fabrics and being thankful fashions have changed! It was quilted with an allover pattern called 'feather frenzy'

This quilt was made by Kath O'Donoghue using her own hand dyed fabrics. It was quilted in a variegated thread in an allover pattern called 'paisley playtime'.

This is the first time I have quilted a trapunto quilt, and I may be addicted now!
It was easier than I first expected and I loved the result.

It is quilted in 'sew fine' an heirloom quality, fine thread, all freehand.
