I’m sat here at my parent’s house in the beautiful Netherlands with this quilt right next to me and I realised I haven’t told you about it!
I made it last year for my Mum’s 70th birthday, as I mentioned before I seem to like making quilts for big family events! I started with plenty of time to go but then a few weeks before mum’s birthday I was driven into by a car when crossing the road, luckily I wasn’t badly hurt but managed to damage the tendons in my shoulder which made everything, particularly quilting this beast, a LOT harder!
But I managed it and she loved it! She particularly loved the backing and binding which my brother (the graphic designer) created and we had printed by the lovely guys over at Woven Monkey.
I particularly liked the rounded corners, this is becoming a favourite feature in my quilts!
Rather than chat lots about it, I’ll just show you! We were lucky enough to spend a few nights for Mum’s birthday at the incredible Burgh Island Hotel in Devon, it’s the most awesome art deco hotel. This was the perfect excuse for a photo shoot!
