For the Love of Quilts Old and New
Thursday, 8 June 2017
Dia Duit, I sent for the Splendid Sampler Quilt Label, but unsure of it, due to it's size...huge.What are your thoughts? It is the size of a fat quarter.
Sheer Bliss, I have been working on my Civil War Sampler Quilt and took a leaf out of my BBF Julie's book. Initially, I was going to make the whole quilt, but have decided to make a smaller quilt.
A couple of weeks back, I joined the boys on a Cortina Run and our lunch destination was a winery on the Bellarine Peninsula, which was hosting a Heritage Day. While I was walking I came across a friend who introduced me to Susan, a fellow quilter and a long arm quilter...A warm thank you to you Susan, for sharing with me some sites where I could obtain some Pantograph patterns for my quilting frame.....Susan, also is a fellow blogger.......
Not sure if you can see in this pic........I was using sticky tape to tape the patterns down, but found I was tearing them when I was taking them off.....Bless DH who came up with the idea of purchasing a piece of perspex, to hold the pattern in place.....I purchased five patterns...pictured above Feather Flip...
cannot wait to finishing piecing this quilt and quilting it on the frame. Slan, O'faigh
