Applique Quilt

Sometimes you finish a quilt top and then? It sits in the cupboard – why ever.

 

This customer saw me at working in a shop on my longarm machine, went home and picked up her quilttop. And then she said: „Do whatever you like!“ And I liked it! Very much!

 

What a difference the quilting made! The customer was surprised and couldn’t belive that this quilt was in the cupboard nearly a decade!

Lattice Quilt

Today the new quilters don’t have a stash. They don’t collect fabrics like we did it in the „old“ time. For that they have „rolls, flat packs, layer cakes“ and much more.

To work with these makes it easy to choose the right color combination. You pick a package and start. This it what I did for this quilt.

I already had customers who bought the same rolls  and made the same quilt. At the end they liked the quilting. So they gave the finished top to me and got it ready quilted back! Feel free to do also so!
