However, as she had purchased from me before, twice, the fact that she is great to work with as she knows exactly what she wants, and it was going to be a simple pattern, I said that I would make it for her.
She chose this gorgeous rare print, Truck Stop by Alexander Henry Fabrics, and the co-ordinating dot print. I then went and matched other prints in blues and greens as requested.
Solid border in Kona Navy and navy and white stripe binding. The back is a wide backing fabric in cream picked up from my local quilt shop. It matches perfectly with the colour of the Truck Stop fabric.
This is the first quilt that I have sent to be quilted on a longarm. As I only do straight line quilting at the moment (I WILL learn to free motion quilt this year!) and I was dreading the idea of wrestling this through the sewing machine, I decided to get it professionally quilted. This was definately the right decision. Sandi at TLC Quilts did a fantastic job. We chose a pattern that looks like a giant tyre track. Very fitting for this quilt.
It was collected this morning and I know it will be loved. Linking up with Quokka Quilts for TGIFF.
