Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

A Delightful Menagerie.

Posted on | February 5, 2019 | 15 Comments

This quilt has been a long time coming together.I started the embroideries over two years ago. They are not particularly difficult, but many interruptions came along and it was often put aside.

It is good to see all the embroideries completed and to have them now together in a quilt.

This is All Creatures Great and Small by Natalie Bird.

There is a selection of animals to be stitched and these are the ones I chose to do.

I have used a mixture of threads from DMC and Cottage garden.

I chose soft greens for the framing fabrics as I felt the colour and pattern needed to be soft rather than busy.

The backing is also a soft green.

Lots of straight line quilting to hold it together with a little meandering around each animal.

Very pleasing to have finally reached the finish line.

Lots of busy things for me to do this week, but all are enjoyable. Hope your week looks good, too.

Cheers, Karen
