Just where does the time go??
Well, this is where some of my time went so far this year (and toward the end of last year) There has been a run on Grandmother Flower Garden Quilts - due to the fact that we (Thursday Crafties) did a friendship block swap with this pattern. Amazing the difference in the quilts according to the colour backgrounds used.
This is Jeans Garden. Front and Back.Pats Garden front.Lorraines Garden front.All gardens had different quilting pantos done on them.
The next quilt was a plain beige front and slightly darker back. A floral panto covered this quilt.A lovely Dresden Plate Quilt. Loved the different colour plates and the sashing is a great compliment. A swirl panto on the center of the quilt.
A feather pattern was used on the border.A cute little lap quilt - Hummingbird and dragonflies panto done on this quilt. This quilting pattern suits many quilts and is very popular.
Back of 'The Secrets of Life'.This lovely Brown and Blue toned quilted with an arabesque pattern.
The colour of the back is chocolate two toned even though it looks rather pink here :(
This quilt was made for a group members daughters 21st (we were rather late in getting it done and handed over)! Purple and gold was the order of the day, disappearing nine patch the pattern.This little cute quilt was quilted with a small leafed feather pattern going down the quilt rather than across to add a bit of dimension to the quilt.

This quilt was done by Glenice - the pattern was Florabunda by Erin Russek. The centre panel was echo quilted with the outer being done in the popular Hummingbird and dragonfly panto.
Well, must go to bed and get some beauty sleep - gosh might be there a while!!!

|An Example of the how to work out what it might cost|
|Measure your quilt top through the centre from top to bottom to|
|get the length.|
|Measure your quilt top through the centre from side to side to|
|get the width.|
|Then calculate using the formula below.|
|Example only - 60" x 80" = 4800 square inches|
|4800 square inches divided by 144 = 33.33 square feet|
|33.33 square feet x $4.00 = $132.30|
|Pre-requisites needed for your quilt|
|If you are supplying the backing and wadding - it needs to be at|
|least 3" larger than the tip of the quilt on all sides. This allows|
|for loading into the machine.|
|All threads need to be trimmed from the front and back of the|
|quilt top and all seams to be ironed flat - this applies to any|
|Mark the top of the quilt with a pin or tag.|
|There is no need to pin your layers together as they will need|
|to be undone before putting through my machine.|
