Quilting finish #2

This is Quilting Finish #2 of a new goal to share with you all the quilts I quilt this year and how they are quilted. Sometimes I may not be able to share the whole quilt so there may be me talking about it and not as many pictures.

Sisterhood BOM

This quilt has been sewn by Stephanie using a pattern by Tammy Silvers of Tamarinis and Kate Colleran of Stitchin’ Heaven, run as a BOM in 2022.

Stephanie has used jewel colours for her quilt and left larger areas in the background fabric to frame the blocks.

Taking quilt pics can be a struggle, it’s raining or sunny, or there is no one to hold it up. I need to make the most of what I have.

We used a pale aqua thread on the front and a darker aqua in the bobbin to match the backing. Sometimes having a higher contrast can be problematic if you have tension issues, I kept watch and thankfully there are none.

The pattern chosen is called Malachite and this was because the colours reminded me of a cache of rough gem stones. The advantage to this pattern is that it can wonderfully cope with a little extra fullness and make this less obvious.

The wadding is a purchased cotton from a local store in Australia. Supplied by the client, yes that’s perfectly fine.
