This machine pieced, hand quilted, hand appliqued quilt was about three years in the making. Unfortunately there is no photo of the backing, but I waited two years to find just the right apple print too. This was also made before I bought my Grace hand quilting frame from Utah, USA. It was quilted in a small round hoop. Ambitious. For obvious reasons, it went into the cupboard in the summer, far too hot to be sitting under a wool batted centre! Ever quilted with wool? It’s a dream. Cotton, comes in close second. It’s drape and feel, somewhat like a warm hug. This is a Lynette Jensen pattern and I started off doing a number of her quilts. Really lovely, easy instructions and pretty country-style quilts. Her books also have a number of great inspirational ways to display your quilts at home. We use all of our quilts; nothing is a technical masterpiece or show worthy. Why have something if you can’t enjoy it? There is one thing we know for sure, when it starts getting cold in this house, there are nearly enough quilts for everyone! Happy Stitching!
