|Meeka thinks any quilt is for her.|
|My sister Janine's Bird Dance Quilt.|
On Wednesday last week, I received a parcel at work. Lots of happy jumpy claps followed. It was my Bird Dance Quilt returning from being quilted by Leanne otherwise known as Quiltmekiwi.
Leanne also quilted my sister's Bird Dance quilt, so I knew she would do a beautiful job. Every bird block has been quilted differently using Leeanne's free range doodling skills. The birds just POP.
My quilt differed from my sister's, in that I omitted the berries that were appliqued and embellished on the border, so I asked Leanne to do feathery flourishy quilting on that.
Batting is a wool/poly blend provided by Leeanne. The backing was a fabric from Laura Gunn's Cosmos Collection, and because I had plain borders, I felt that I could get away with a bright multicoloured binding so used a Philip Jacobs print called Tree fungi which picked up a lot of the colours.
The last photos shows both my sister's and my Bird Dance quilt, completed in colours and styles that are individual to us.
Now we're trying to decide on a project for next year, the cushion I had originally picked has fallen off the want to make list.
Have a fabulous weekend.
