Morganne's quilt

I quilted this beauty for my friend Morgie - her mum made it as a birthday present for her and it has exquisitely stitched sewing machines all over it. The amount of work in each block is amazing and her stitching is perfect.

I quilted it using both the freehand and computerised machines - the outside border is a pattern by Keryn Emerson called Arabesque. The mustard border has freehand leaves, and the Irish chain blocks have line dancing and leaves in them - you can't see much as I have used black thread.

The stitchery blocks have a One Song Needle Arts Frame called Tea and Roses Block29 with just a simple circle inside. The machines have have SID around them.

These last two pics are Ann and I at the photographer's getting some quilt pics done professionally. Ann's DH took the pics with my camera.

It was interesting to see how someone who knows what he is doing work!
