Evolution of a quilt: 10

7 06 2008

It’s back!

I gave Judy—a local quilter—my dragonfly quilt before I headed off overseas in March. I knew she couldn’t do it for a while and I was OK with that. I got a call from her on Wednesday telling me she’d finished quilting it on her long arm quilting machine (I should have taken some photos of her but I totally forgot to ask her!).

When I’d given her the quilt, we’d talked about some ideas for the quilting—perhaps some sun’s rays, some grapevine tendrils—but I left it in her creative hands. She told me she let the quilt ‘talk to her’ and I’m really pleased with the result. I’ve added a couple of photos at the end of this blog post, but click here for all the photos.

So now I’m down to the last stages—squaring up the quilt, trimming the excess batting and backing, adding a hanging sleeve and doing the binding. I think we’ve got a craft afternoon tomorrow, so maybe I’ll get some of it done then—I’ll need the big tables that the function centre has to get it done properly. My kitchen counter just isn’t suitable!

Oh, and if you’re looking for a good professional quilter, Judy’s details are:
