I was so thrilled when my client asked me to quilt her quilt as she is the one that taught myself and a few other quilters how to dye fabric using the low immersion technique. Her quilt contains a combination of commercial batiks and her hand dyed fabrics. It is just beautiful. I wanted to keep the quilting simple and just add movement to it by using my Flourish panto. Picking thread for this one was a challenge as I ordered many different threads but just not satified with what I received. Then as I was going through my threads I came across a dark purple that just seemed to work like magic on this quilt and blend beautifully with the fabrics.
Tomorrow I am off to my guilds Retreat for the next two days and today I was very happy to received my fabric order in the mail so I have a project to work on. I don't have many UFO's so I would have had to thrown something together tonight if I didn't get my fabric order today. I'll post pictures on Sunday of what I accomplish this weekend...I'll just say that it involves beautiful Island Batiks!
Here are more pictures of my clients log cabin quilt.
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and look forward to opening my business again soon.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I have recently become addicted to dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
