As you can see it was a fun time had by all. I came home and managed to start quilting on my newest quilt to go on the frame. I will be linking to Kathys Slow Stitching Sunday. I hope you enjoy the few magic moments on this Mothers day and also the few stitches I can show you. If you would like to see more quilts I have made the album public for everyone to see all of the quilts in the Quilt show on my Face book page with the Album Lang Lang Quilt show 2016 I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
Now for today, I decided I would finsh a couple of quilt tops with borders!
Welcome to the Wehago Designs Trunk Show!
|Storm at Sea|
Storm at sea was made for my youngest daughter for her move from Secondary School to University Study. I did not finish it until her second year of University. It measures 93″ x 96″. I paper pieced this using the Freezer paper method and I hand quilted this with Aurifil 28wt. She loves it!
This quilt was made for my eldest daughter on her move from Secondary School to University. she loved pink and green and butterflies. So this is the quilt I came up with for her. It is not as big as the other daughters quilt. And I am in the process of making her a new quilt, it is green and orange with greys. I am looking forward to finishing it for her next year.
This was a quilt I made for my niece for her 21st Birthday. This was a very interesting pinwheel design. I was really please with this. It was a lap size quilt.
|Another 21st Quilt|
This is a bargello quilt I made for a daughters 21st, I actually made two of these in about 6 weeks as I had two 21st gifts. I hand quilted these also, just simply to emphasise the flow of the quilt. Both girls loved their quilts.
|Josh’s Swans Quilt|
This is another 21st quilt. This was made this year for my daughters boyfriend who is a Sydney Swans Fan. I designed the new york beauty block to emulate the Sydney Opera House which is in their emblem. I made this into a quillow and I hand quilted this with 12 wt thread from Aurifil. This quilt was quilted in under two weeks and a week to put together. It was a few days late for gifting.
This little art quilt is part of a competition called One Red Thread. This is my interpretation of Bastille Day in Paris with the girls from Moulin Rouge out dancing in the streets.
|2015 Pantone colour of the year quilt|
This is my Pantone entry for 2015. I hand quilted this quilt and I call it Time Warp. I have used reproduction fabrics but pieced it modern and heavily quilted it with 28wt Aurifil thread to emulate a 3D pattern in the hexagon with background like pebbles
|Hey Grub! lets fly a kite!|
These last two where also using the hexagon trim tool by creative grids like Time Warp. I love this tool and am always thinking of more ways I can experiment with it. Both of these quilts were machine quilted by myself
This quilt was made for someone special to help cheer her up and give her comfort as she has some health issues. I made this within a week. 2 days to piece it and 5 days to quilt it. I hand quilted this with 12 wt Aurifil. I used a large daisy and just quilted a swirly vine between the flowers
|Snuggle/floor play quilt|
|in the snuggle ready for baby|
This quilt was made and machine quilted by me also. This was made for a new born and it has room for her as she grows and needs to play on the floor. Her mum adores it as uses it all the time.
I am sorry I haven’t blogged for ages. I have been a bit under the weather with sickness but I still have managed to do some sewing. I thought it was time to give you a few photos and explanation of what I have been doing.
|a few buntings|
I have been making buntings and a few other things for sale. These are available from my local newsagent but I will also be setting up a website which you can purchase some of my items from. I am hoping to have the website up and running by end of this month. As well as specialising in different buntings I have been making some fun aprons also. i am sure these will make fun gifts for the up coming season.
