Ali's Summersville Quilt

Ali ( a friend of my sister) made this lovely bright lap quilt for a very lucky little chap. 

She bought the feature fabrics ("Summersville") when we were all at the Festival of Quilts at Birmingham last summer and has found some really good colour matches in the bright solids.

Ali requested a sort of square spiral design for the quilting, with curved corners - I hope I hit the mark!

The backing's a really jolly multi-coloured spot - I used a gold thread for the quilting and you can see it quite nicely on the backing too.

Couldn't quite manage to get a straight shot of the quilt - sorry arms not long enough!  However, I can assure you it was a pleasure to quilt, it loaded beautifully onto the longarm and there were no wavy borders or puffy bits in sight!  Well done Ali!


  1. I know I may be a little bit bias, but I think it looks absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to see it in real life!!

    Thank-you for doing such a good job... Oh I'm so excited!

  2. It should be with you Tuesday - not long to wait!

  3. It is gorgeous, i love the soft edged square quilting it really compliments the geometric design!Catx
