Did I say Stars?

Hi ,
This lovely star quilt was made for my customers grandson for his 5th birthday. Kyan went to the material shop with nanna and picked out his own colours.
I think he did well it is a lovely colourful quilt.big enough for a queen size bed.
I chose a quilting design called Fireworks digitised by kim Diamond. I love the result and I am sure he will too.

stars and more stars.

This is the third or fourth quiltI have quilted in this design now. It is called Davids Choice. This quilt has been quilted using an Anne Bright E2E called Botanical Blossoms. The border is quilted with a feather scollop. The customer will cut the border around the scollops and bind it as a scolloped border. The gold thread used in the quilting compliments the gold paint on the black fabric.

new quilts to see

This quilt is stunning. The aplique is hand stitched using blanket stitch and the blocks are machine pieced. It is so big I couldn't get a full view successfully. The quilt is custom quilted using designs created by Anne Bright in the borders and sashings, and handguided outline and stipple in the blocks. I used white thread in the blocks and the predominantly white border and light blue thread in the batic borders.
Love this quilt.

I am sorry the photo's
are a bit dark I have the blind down against the heat and forgot it may make the pics darker.

I quilted this using a 2"crosshatch design in the outer borders and over the stitcheries. I trimmed out the aplique so that there is no stitching on them The sashing borders have a leafy vine pattern in them. I used fawn silouettre cotton
This quilt looks awesome!!!
