I’m usually more productive in December when it comes to finishing my own quilt but this year I only had time for two finishes this month. Here is my Day Break quilt, a Jaybird Designs pattern and I quilted it almost the same as the one I quilted for Lynn a few weeks ago here. It was a nice coincidence that I received a quilt to quilt that I was also working on myself and that I could quilt them the same so I could have a sample of the quilting. Sometimes when I create a quilting design I’m really happy with on a clients quilt and then return the quilt to its owner it can be bittersweet. To work so hard on something and then have to give it back …but then again that’s my job and isn’t it that way it is with all the quilts we make as gifts!
This quilt is made with all batik fabrics and was a kit from a quilt shop in Swan River, Manitoba called Fabriculous. I’m getting ready to mail this quilt to the shop as it will be hanging there on display so I hope it helps sell kits! When I get it back I think I’ll hang it in the Shack.
I used white So Fine thread on top and white Bottom Line in the bobbin. Quilters Dream Blend batting and a solid white backing. The quilting is all free hand and ruler work.
