Ocean Waves by Brynne

A gift for Brynne’s goddaughter in England.  Brynne decided on the Ocean Waves quilt in Denyse Schmidt’s Modern Quilts Traditional Inspiration book.  The bits of colour that you see are Liberty of London fabrics.

Brynne wanted it custom quilted with loops, just as the quilt in Denyse’s book, you can get a better look at the quilting from the back of the quilt.

Such a lovely baby gift.

Godmothers are special, they are chosen.

A Kaffe Fassett Tumbler quilt by Lynda

This colourful Tumbler quilt of Kaffe Fasset fabrics was made by Lynda for her sister-in-law Donna, she said it matched her lively personality.

Lynda chose the Chantilly Lace pantograph by Norma Sharp and a Rainbow variegated thread for the quilting.

I believe kind thoughts, memories and hugs are all stitched into this quilt. Beautiful work Lynda.
