I have been very lucky that I have been super busy the last few months.
It is very exciting to have several projects in many different magazines.
This month I have the pleasure of being in not one,
One of the coolest patterns I have worked on was this optical illusion quilt for Jenny at Love Patchwork & Quilting.
As always it starts with a bit of looking around online and through my photos. After a chat with Jenny on what would be a good selection of fabrics I narrowed it down to a few of the new lines from Art Gallery. Because most new fabric ranges are available online as jpegs, I can easily create my quilt digitally before even ordering the fabrics. This method allows me to shift and reposition the prints to best suit the design. I like doing this!
As you can see the finished quilt looks virtually identical to the image above which was made digitally.
Once it was pinned out the spiral was started on my Janome Horizon 7700. This machine makes quick and easy work of the full size quilt.
(Thank you to RayStitch for always letting me use the big green table to pin my projects)
I really like the way this turned out. Looking forward to sitting warmly under it on the sofa watching some bad tv!
I even seam matched the back so you won’t be able to find the join. I dare you to try and find it!
