Laundry Basket Quilt


Hello quilt lovers, nice to have you back for another visit. I have a few beautiful quilts to share with you but not until they are back in the arms of their owners (of course I have posted sneak peeks on my Facebook and Instagram accounts). However the following quilt IS back in it's owners arms so I can share the details with you.


The owner of this beautiful quilt is Kerryn, owner of The Country Yard. A simple yet clever design made up using Laundry Basket fabrics. Kerryn asked for the 'Turbulence' edge to edge quilting pattern. I used Glide thread in the colour 'warm grey' - which is a very soft beige.


Kerryn also asked for the 'Full Quiltmekiwi Binding Service'......................Thank you Kerryn!


With the school holidays in full swing here in New Zealand I am taking a short break from quilting to spend time with my eldest granddaughter, who knows what we will get up to!
While tidying up a few loose ends before she arrives I happen to see Juliet's Sew-Along! Bad news for my Running Zebra...........good news for stash busting! So Zebra aside and welcome 'Kingi' my Kingfisher!


Measuring only 9" square I just love this little fella! What fun I had raiding my stash for this. Because Kingi didn't take long to make he was left hanging all alone in my wee sewing nook (with a very depressed and abandoned Zebra!).............s-e-w............I made 'Olly' the Otter too to keep him company!


Now I know for sure they both will need their mates hedgehog (unnamed & unmade) and fawn (also unnamed & unmade) to join them............the question IS will my main stay of fabrics stretch to the other two critters??

  4. OK, I don't want to know about Juliet's sew along... I cannot add any more projects onto my "to do" list. But that otter is insanely cute and the kingfisher is just as bad...

  8. The colors of Kerryn's quilt are so soothing. That was my first impression. Then to read that it was quilted with a design named "Turbulence", made me laugh.
    Juliet's designs are so clever. Your little animal friends look so good! It caught my attention when I read "hedgehog", as DD#2 got one for her family's pet for Christmas. : )
