I've made this quilt for an ex-colleague of mine. We worked together for about seventeen years and she was a huge support to me when I was Acting Head and at other difficult times. She's finally decided to take the plunge and retire.
I used a jelly roll which had been cut by De at Midsomer Quilting. She cuts a lot of their own jelly rolls, which is great because I hate sewing with the pinked edges on commercial rolls, I can never work out where the edge is supposed to be. Aren't the colours wonderful?
I'm pleased with the quilting on this one too. I stabilised it with invisible thread then used one of the decorative stitches to do a simple zig-zag following the pattern. In the borders I stitched a cable pattern. I couldn't work out how to turn the corners, so I've put a button there instead!
