My sister Anne is a fantastic quilter,she has a great eye for colour and combining colours.This is one of her quilts she's been working on and when I mentioned "Susan" (you know who you are) another blogger was interested in seeing her blocks for this quilt Anne happily placed them out for me to take photo's for my blog. Anne is working her blocks with blanket stitch not needle turn and she's enlarged the blocks a bit as some of the points were too close to the edges so she'll be working out a diferent border for her quilt to the one in the pattern as well as making it bigger by adding more blocks :)
Here's a close up of some of the blocks.Anne has only used her scraps for this quilt and if you look closely you'll probably recognise a few fabric ranges that have been very poular over the past few years.
Everyone thinks I'm organised but I have to say Anne is super organised and very methodical when working on any of her patchwork projects...these photos are circles of the fabrics she's using in this quilt with the relevant thread number being used with that particular fabric written under each dot....told you she was VERY organised!
Anne then laminates each of these information sheets and has them with her quilt/patchwork supplies for this particular project .........she does this with all her quilts :) Thanks for letting me share your lovely blocks on my blog Anne and I'm sure all my bloggy friends will love seeing them too.
I've been working on getting my binding ready so I can get some quilts quilted,three done today which means I now have a total of six quilts ready to head of to the quilter to be quilted,this particular quilter will trim and sew on your binding for you for just a little extra......money well spent in my book,so all I'll have to do when they come back is to sew the binding down and add a label and they're done!
