I put a sampler sheet on the mid arm yesterday to do some practice stitching…and in the process messed up the machine! Grrrr…so frustrating!! I dropped the bobbin case and although it looked fine, it clearly was feeling some sort of pain! So off to the Sewing Centre it went for a Spa WEEK! A WHOLE WEEK!
The practice work was in preparation to quilt the Wedding Signature quilt commemorating my daughter’s wedding!
Instead of a guest book, the guests signed a block of fabric. Well the quilt is now officially a top and is ready and waiting for the quilting…
The fabric is called ‘Horizon’ by Kate Spain…and if you look below, you will see that Kate Spain sent a signed block to make Maggie and Toby’s quilt even more special! So thoughtful of her! This fabric is perfect as it really represents the colours of the wedding…mauve was the wedding colour… and we have the green of the forests, the blues of the ocean and the clear blue sky. Perfect!
The quilt turned out WAY bigger than I thought it would. I used one jelly roll and off white Kona cotton to make this quilt… finishing up at 64” X 72”…a perfect size to snuggle under!
Don’t you love this signed block…a little jem in the middle of the quilt!!
Now we sit and wait…or at least this quilt will sit and wait…I have ‘work’ to do!! Pitter patter let’s get at ‘er!
Have a FUN Friday and Happy Stitching!~P
