In December I stop taking custom quilting jobs, and schedule more allover quilting so I can get more quilts done for my customers before Christmas, as most of them are Christmas presents at this time of year. I have only a couple more to do this year and most of the quilts I have done this month have already been collected so they can be bound in time.
This hasn’t left me much time for writing my blog. But I have taken photos of a couple of the allover quilts I have done that have caught my eye, and will share them in the next couple of posts.
What I liked about this quilt by Coral is the story behind it.
Coral’s grandson moved to Canada to work. He met a lovely Canadian woman while he was there, and in October last year they got married.
They are both coming back to Australia to live, and she wanted to make her grandson’s wife something special that combined both Australia and Canada. She made a quilt in Canada’s colours that had both the Canadian Maple Leaf and the Australian Waratah.
I think this is a special quilt, with a special story.
