This is one of the prettiest Black and White quilts I have ever seen and I was also lucky enough to be asked to quilt it. I cross hatched the borders, quilted a feather wreath in the setting squares and did a free hand feather motif around the baskets. My client has made the special birthday in her family the 40th and she will be giving quilts for those birthdays.
Yes... that is white thread on black fabric....I was being brave and really like how it turned out. I know my backtracks on the feathers are more noticable on the back but I told myself that is okay, they look just fine. After all at my age I've learnt to not be so hard on myself. (36 day to the big 40...not that I'm counting)
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 looking forward to discovering all the beauty of the area and meeting new quilters.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I also enjoy 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.
