Another wonderful find!! I’ve been really lucky lately. This one is a rare queen sized kit, 88×114 in excellent condition. In addition I also have the kit for the wallhanging shown above the bed in the picture. The small quilt is 40×40 so it can also be used as a crib quilt.
Again, I would love to make up one or both of these kits for you – the quilts will be entirely hand appliqued and hand quilted – guaranteed to become a family treasure.
In addition to this blog on my quilt studio website, I blog at http://www.quiltingwithjanet.blogspot.com and will be posting a picture there this evening of my most recent completed commission – an art quilt inspired by a painting of geese by Canadian First Nations artist Benjamin Chee Chee.
I want to show you a quilt I just finished piecing this morning. It is 50×64 inches – a good snuggle size – and is made from about a dozen different co-ordinated fabrics reproduced from the 1830 to 1880 time period. Featured are fabrics in the indigo and cheddar colourways by Margo Krager. When finished, the quilt will be bound in a dark blue print. This quilt is in a simple, timeless style and can be completed and shipped to you at a cost of $525USD anywhere in North America. Elsewhere shipping will be a little more.
I think my major quiltmaking strengths are in colour choice and design, and I am thrilled by how this one has turned out.
I have so many ideas for using my extensive fabric collection – perhaps you would like me to design something for you using your favourite colours and size.
I am feeling very creative these days as the weather has finally improved and is now more typical of summer on the North Atlantic seacoast, instead of the steamy tropics. Working hard to finish up a couple of commissions and get on to new projects!
