The first quilt of 2016

Remember I was talking about this quilt back a few weeks ago? I quilted and bound before the bias tape quilt but haven’t shown any picture of it. Now it’s with a customer and I can show you some quilting detail.

This quilt’s inspirations are from what he loved and the main material used are from his shirts. Quilting needed to add more illustration to tell the story. And I hope I did.

There were some more fabrics left and they were made into cushion covers and a tea cosy.
