Before Christmas 2016 I was commissioned to make a lap quilt. It was to be a gift from a husband to his wife.
As with all commissions I took details of colour preferences and my brief was to use pastels. Luckily I stock Tilda fabric in pre-cut bundles, which was perfect for this commission. The tricky part was to decide on which fabric line to use as they are all pretty and with delicate patterns. The client decided on the Summer Fair collection and I set about putting the quilt together.
When it came to making decisions about adding a border and binding and about choosing the appropriate backing fabric, the customer was fully involved and it was very gratifying to meet the customer's expectations.
The fabric is 100% cotton and between the layers is 100% cotton wadding. I made the quilt on a domestic sewing machine and finished it by hand.
