Bunnies and Boxes on the quilting frame

It’s been too long since I’ve shared with you some of my customer’s work…. Today is all about Barb. She’s a lovely lady, living locally in the Adelaide Hills and her quilting skills are superb. Here are two of her quilts I recently finished off and delivered to her, and you will be seeing more of her work over the next few months.

This is the Elizabeth Hartman Bunny quilt pattern – found HERE. We selected a soft, swirly quilting design which was stitched out in a pale lemon colour which perfectly disappeared into the background fabric.

Barb has bought a full bolt of pure wool batting for her quilts – I love the softness and the definition it gives to the quilting. You just want to sit and snuggle with it as soon as you feel it.

We also chose the quilting design to work with the beautiful backing fabric Barb had found – what a perfect match for a quilt of orange bunnies! I’m showing off these pictures of the back here because I am challenging you to find Barb’s seam – there is a vertical seam through this print and her pattern matching skills are the best I’ve ever seen!


Second on the frame was this bright and fun pink and green quilt – I’m not sure of the pattern name.

We chose a floral quilting design which worked perfectly with the flowers in the fabric Barb used – stitched out in white thread it provides a layer of interest without competing with the fabric.

Again the same wool batting provides a level of softness and definition that is really comfortable.

You might be concerned about using a white bobbin thread on such a strong coloured backing, but as you can see above, the pattern camouflages the stitching to the point that it almost becomes invisible. Again, Barb made a gorgeous backing, this time using a strip of a border stripe to widen the backing and provide a point of visual interest.
