My Quilts, FMQ


All Free Motion Quilted on my Domestic Sewing Machine.

Now I can post what I have done.this year.  I was held up a bit as we moved house halfway throught the year and things were to say the least very unsettled.

This was made as a gift for a special Family overseas for Christmas....hence the Aboriginal design

Sewn with Black silk YLI thread on top and fine line neutral coloured thread on the backing.

Be warned - Lots of photos, as there are a multitude of different fillers.. plus my multi-coloured thread quilted Australian wildlife, and some applique of more Wildlife.

Oh and 2 of my trademark Ladybugs.

There are a lot of photos... and I hope its not all too much after such a time with nothing from me at all :)

 Straight ruler work above in places



One ladybug above..

Yes I did get some feathers of a sort in here

Some curved ruler work above

 Mother and child here

Same Ladybug..

Somewhere among the above lot, there is a second ladybug, a snake wrapped round an applique piece.. and a lizard quilted in the middle in the black...but I couldn't find them myself when I put these up.

And some of the mug rugs that were also gifts.

I am now working on another quilt..but I will put those pictures up in a few days.

Those will be a work in progress.

Its so good to be back!!

Wow, what a huge effort Joan, with such a lot of interesting things to look at on it; it is so nice to see this finished. I bet the new owners are thrilled with it!
