Next the Binding

This is where Maisie thinks her new sleeping place is. Whenever I have a quilt loaded on the longarm she is there-I have the machine set up in my garage which has internal access to the house and the door is always open. Luckily I do not quilt for others or the set up would have to change.

So here is the quilt ready for binding.
 I stitched in the ditch around the triangles and echoed this in the white triangles and then in the negative space, apart from Oliver's name I did double wavy organic lines. Enough that it will still cuddly when it is washed.
 This was a pattern in the Nov/Dec 2014 issue of Fons and Porters Quilty magazine and is by Christina Cameli who blogs at and she also has a Craftsy class on machine quilting.
Here is the photo from the magazine and you can see they look quite different just by changing the colours and the quilting..
I am pleased with how mine turned out and really like the lettering even though it is not perfect. I am sure when he gets it Oliver will not mind, and nor will his mum. This is a surprise quilt and will be posted off to a friend who lives in Australia.


  1. What a great quilt! The lettering looks amazing. The quilting is clever the way it goes off into wavy lines, I thought when you showed a peek the other day that you were going to do the tiny quilting all over, which would have taken forever!

  2. This looks great, your quilting is perfect, love how you have quilted his name!

  3. What a great way to personalize it, I LOVE it.

  4. Beautifully done! Love the colors and the quilting really highlights the name!

  5. Wow that is stunning. Well done chick.
