Quilting is for Fun!








Sliver Threads






A very warm welcome if you are visiting from the Blogger's Quilt Festival - and also to my wonderful regular readers.   

As with pretty much anything in life, quilting is what you make of it. My Royal Whispers quilt is filled with wild combinations of fabric types and colours, ribbons and trims, threads and stitches, techniques and ideas. In so many ways it is a 'break the rules' quilt - and I love it. 






















Most of the fabrics used were left over from previous projects or already part of my collection. In the two months since completing Royal Whispers it has been well used - one of my daughters currently has it on her bed (although I intended it for myself).   :)

If you would like to know more about this quilt, particularly the threads used, you will find details and links in previous posts here and here.

Your Royal Whispers quilt, Karen, is resplendent in its glorious colours and fabrics with its bejewelled touches throughout. It is singing the noblest of anthems! About breaking the rules....sometimes the only rule is to break the rules.

You and I have quilts in the same 2 categories! This one is loads of fun to see all the stitching with fun threads and your model is very cute. I think she has laid claim on Your Quilt for sure.

Karen, That quilt just makes me smile. It's snowing here - may I borrow it from your daughter for a few hours to snuggle up on my favorite chair while I read? Wanted to tell you I'm thinking of getting a macro lens for my new camera.
