Clowns Choice

Hi all,

What a funny name for a quilt, right? I am not very good at naming things.

I have had one of my quilts published in the latest Quilters Companion magazine. Yay!

The name come from the traditional block that the quilt is based on. I used EQ7 to draw up the block and play around with the design layout. I made a couple of test blocks to make sure the size of the blocks were ok before I made the whole quilt.

I quilted it on a longarm machine that I hired from Bee Creative on the Sunshine Coast. I would so love to have my own longarm setup one day!

The fabric I used is the Saltwater range by Tula Pink and virtually a whole bolt of Bella White. And it is a big 90" square!

Bye for now, Jess :)

Oh my, you are a dark horse. You never said a word, or maybe I missed it. In any case, congratulations for that beautiful (and elegant) quilt and for having it published. Here's to many more (and to that long arm machine as well).
