Those who follow me on Instagram will know I’ve been working on an art quilt over the past week, it was a surprise gift so I could only share a few cropped photos of stitching in progress. Today Steph has received her Natural Ginkgo art quilt so I can finally show you the completed piece, it’s already up on her wall and looks fabulous. I struggled to find suitable base fabrics for this piece so Steph gave me some of her precious eco printed fabrics to use and they work perfectly. This piece took many hours of stitching on my Janome 1600 and many metres of thread and I enjoyed every minute of it.
As well as creating the art quilt I found some time to make a little thank you bookmark for Marie who has supported my stitching since the early days. Marie is one of those wonderful friends who gives you free reign to create what you want and as leaves are my new path I decided on four golden leaves. Marie received it today and is thrilled, I can’t wait to make some more.
Lots more stitching to be getting on with tomorrow so I’m off to put my feet up with a glass of wine. Have a great weekend everyone. X
