I was really excited to be given this quilt to quilt as it was made with my Four Patch Charm Tutorial which you can find here. This quilt belongs to Wendy and she did a great job picking bright coloured batiks fabric for this project, they are not a collection. At first she mentioned she would love to have it quilted exactly like I did mine, which I have no problem doing, but she brought a Minkie backing. I don’t like to quilt heavily with Minkie as it looks like a hot mess on the back! Once I explained that to her she understood and them mentioned she planned on making another one so will bring a cotton backing for the next one so it can be custom quilted. Great solution!
Wendy said this one will be for her couch so I suggested Quilters Dream Puff batting to keep it cozy and not add any more weight to the quilt as the Minkie is heavy. She loved the Deja Vu panto that she saw on one of my quilts so that was the one for this quilt. I used off white So Fine thread top and off white Bottom Line on the backing.
The leave have turned yellow quite quickly and are falling fast. Autumn is such a short season here.
