Things have settled back to normal here at needlesandlemons headquarters after Quilt Con and in fact I should be popping in here a bit more regular for a while with posts about quilts in progress and not just finished quilts.
I have currently no deadlines for any of the magazines I worked with last year and am free to show what I want. I really love working with LP&Q but there is a small downside to it in that I can't show much of the work I do for them until the issue is out and then it is only the finished quilt. I hope I will work for them again in the future but right now I am a free agent !
Alas this post is also only a finished product; one that was a commission for a client and which I could have shown but didn't have time....
Anyhow, here is a picture post of the Single Girl quilt I started here. My client commissioned me to make a quilt with the 'Single Girl' quilt pattern as a single bed quilt for her lovely daughter. A size I have worked with only once before for another client. It's an interesting size as it is long and narrow and this pattern lends itself wonderfully to it.
The quilt is 2.20 m x 1.20 m which is a great size for a single bed. The fabric used are all Kona colours and the background colour is Kona Slate which is a bluish grey that is fresh and sets of the bright colours of the rings.
I quilted in my favourite quilting pattern, the continuous circle of course and added on two corners a partial circle for a bit of interest.
The backing fabric is the 'Palette in spakle' print from Carrie Bloomsten's paint collection which I think is a great print for a young girl.
I make no secret that this quilt pattern by Denyse Schmidt is probably my favourite of all times as it is utterly modern and contemporary and I again loved making this quilt and collaborating with my client on fabric and colour choices. It was fun and she and I are both happy with the result. Isn't that what's all about ?
