One of my customers Tracy Aplin has made this Beautiful Quilt for the Quilt SOS project. She wanted to make a quilt using my exclusives. Yes I thought! Here it is. Gosh I really love the use of plain colours alongside the delicate tones of the exclusives.
Tracy hand pieced the quilt top using a pattern by Judy Newman called Emma Mary. It comes in templates making it easy to cut with a rotary cuter and hand sew. Here’s Tracy’s work in progress.
She really enjoyed making it but also says that she wants to make it again in a bigger selection of Liberty. One of the things I love to hear about Tracy’s sewing is that she takes her sewing on holiday. She finished this one off on holiday in France in the summer.
A close up of the design which showcases the exclusive Liberty fabrics really well.
Tracy has backed the quilt in a plain blue which is really pretty. This is a quilt that will be treasured by the new owner when I deliver the quilts in November.
If you want to take part in the Quilt SOS project, you can take a look here. Thank you so much Tracy and to all of those quilters who have taken part this year and in past years.
