Finally the Big Reveal


Well here it is the quilt that consumed all my spare time for about 6 weeks before Christmas.

I made it for Miss Le Coiffure and her partner for Christmas. She wanted the colors to match brown and dusty pink acrylic flower paintings that she has above her bed. Also she wanted stars and hearts.

As the brown & pink was a quite specific color I ended up adding some green so that I would have enough fabric.

Now this quilt is quite big 2.4 meters wide and 2.8 meters long, which I free motion machine quilted on my sewing machine.

It was made with 63 x 12" blocks which consisted of ...


4 fan blocks one for each corner


10 Goose Creek blocks


6 Pieced Star blocks


4 Star of Milky Way blocks


8 Starflower blocks


8 Coxey's Camp blocks


20 Heart blocks

Plus 3 special blocks


Lola the Staffy who lived with us as a puppy when Miss Le Coiffure still lived at home.


Tieka the tabby cat when Miss Le Coiffure came home before she got Lola she brought home with her a kitten Miss Tieka


Last but not least Zara a Bull Terrier who Miss Le Coiffure got as a pup for free because of her fathers parentage ! Her Mum is a pedigree miniature Bull Terrier but her owner thinks Zara's Dad is her sons Staffy that came for a visit !


Here is another view of the finished quilt draped over my bed.

Well that's it for today's show and tell. I have even asked to enter 3 quilts into a quilt show , very exciting this will be one of them.
