Fabulous And Finished

Lynda and Nuttie have been busy, not one fabulous and finished project, but two. Each one made with the same method the yet they look completely different. They have been made with the thinnest of fabric strips and Quilt-As-You-Go onto foam interfacing, (Bosal's In R Form, but any would work) Toot toot toot etty-Toot ladies

Sporty Sue wanted bright and wooowha did do she achieve bright!! A Layer cake of Kaffe Fassett fabrics started this whole thing off. Sue didn't want to cut the bits too small so decided to make Giant Pinwheel blocks. The project was a bit long and skinny and Sue decided she needed 20 inch bordes... step up the scrumptious Art Gallery Solids, co-ordinated with black and white dots...

This is the back, so completely different, isn't it fun!! Apartment joining is pleasing a lot of my customers. You are going to see lots more large quilts made this way... it is so do-a-bubble. Toot toot toot Sporty Sue, It is a splendid example of a fabulous and finished quilt.

It doesn't get any more unique than Pleasing Your Very Own Self.
Start with an idea for a lovely young person and fly!!! This quilt has been made without a pattern and with each step being decided along the way. Gail has really enjoyed making it, even the hand pieced hexagons for the balls, which have been stuffed (Trapunto style) for added WOW

The back has been personalised too. Quilted by stitching around the balls and adding little bounce lines... very arty farty. There are squiggles of grass to anchor any open areas without spoiling the match, ha! Toot toot toot Gail, it's a truly fabulous finish... and this quilt has not been near Gail's garage quarantine area!!
