LongArm Quilting

Here another quilt that Alan has just finished for a client.  The client provided the quilt top which measured 94” x 94”.  ATQ provided Spectrum Nautical Blue for the backing fabric and 50/50 Bamboo/Cotton Wadding 124” wide, with the binding fabric Freespirit Plum also provided by ATQ.
The quilt was quilted with the Heart in Heart pattern which had been the pattern on one of her previous quilts. She specifically requested this pattern again for this quilt as it was going to be a present for someone special. However, she didn’t want the colour of the thread or the pattern to stand out too much and detract from the fabrics so a 40/3 wt thread from Aurifil called Dusty Lavender was chosen.
When the quilt top was originally brought to us, with it having lots of colours, the dilemma was what fabrics do we chose for backing and binding. The client had an idea of what she wanted and after a long discussion and lots of bolts of fabrics the client (and her husband) were delighted with the choices made, especially when they saw the finished quilt.
This is the third quilt that this lady has asked us to do, and once again she was over the moon with the finished result, the pictures really don’t do the colours justice.
