Finally finished my beach quilt and I just love it!!! I used my dark blue hand dyed fabric that I originally planned to use for the backing for the binding and it looks fantastic. I learnt that hand stitching my dyed binding fabric onto a quilt with my dyed fabric on the back is very hard to do. Took three days to stitch and I had to use a thimble which I never use for binding. But it was all worth it in the end. I used my Dragonfly Pond Pantograph with a light beige thread. This is the first time I have used my new Quilter's Dream Deluxe cotton batting, it is wonderful to quilt with and has a great loft to it.
I loved this quilt so much I even painted my toes to match!!! ( And I rarely paint my toes!)
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.
