Busy Week for Customer Quilts

Well its been a busy week for customers collecting their quilts.

Here is what I've been up to - with kind permission of their owners....

The first quilt is a large, vintage, hand pieced Trip Around the World in Laura Ashley Farbrics.

The pattern chosen is Simply Leaves

The next quilt is simple squares, but with a seaside theme.

The pattern is Happy Fish

My next customers quilt is again a hand pieced vintage top. This Grand Mothers Flower Garden was stunning - the workmanship was superb and the quilt behaved beautifully  - true perfection!

The pattern is called Pretty Daisys

This next traditional quilt was spiced up with a modern pattern called Late Night

and the final quilt this week is a pretty double wedding ring.

The design chosen for this one is hearts and loops
