In Full Bloom

I have recently had the pleasure of quilting a Sue Spargo quilt called In Full Bloom for my customer Penny.  Penny completed this quilt as part of Sue Spargo's 2014 Block of the Month Quilt Programme.

In Full Bloom is made with beautiful wool fabric and incorporates applique and lots of embroidery embellishments.  I am sure you will agree it is a stunning quilt.

I had lots of fun with the quilting, using a number of different background designs.

I did particularly like the feathered border -

The pattern for In Full Bloom was released recently at Spring Market.

Birch Trees Quilt

While I may have been somewhat absent from my Blog lately, I have certainly been busy quilting. Today I would like to share a beautiful Bright Birch Trees Quilt pieced by Marg.  Bright Birch Trees is a quilt pattern by Crazy Mom Quilts.

The quilt is made with a range of different coloured solids for the backgrounds which shows the quilting beautifully.  I had a wonderful time quilting Marg's quilt with fern plumes, some feathers and lots of loops.

I think you will agree that this has made for a fun and happy quilt!

I am featuring this quilt in Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2015.  The Blogger's Quilt Festival is an online quilt festival where bloggers from around the world showcase a quilt.  Once you have had a look here, head on over and take some time viewing the other wonderful quilts.
