LongArm Quilting

This quilt was a collaboration project between Alan & Amanda.  Alan had a lot of scrap batik fabric and decided to cut them into strips then sew them together to see what happened.  After deciding on how to lay them out Alan then asked Amanda what colour backing fabric and binding would she choose.  After consideration of a few fabrics, she kept going back to the same one, which was Robert Kaufman Fusions Ochre.  She also decided to use the same fabric for the binding.

Again, Alan asked Amanda to pick which pattern to do on the longarm and Squiggle was decided on.  Alan though the Aurifil forty/3wt Marakesh would be a good thread as it is variegated and has all the colours, so that was the one used.

Every time Amanda looked at it she said to Alan that it brought a smile to her face.  After staying late to get it finished just before Christmas, unbeknown to Amanda, this was to be her Christmas present!  She was over the moon and now snuggles up with it on a night to watch TV, although she does want to put it on display in our shop but she might wait until the nights are warmer.

For more information on how this quilt was made keep checking the website for Alan’s blog post.
