COCKATOO'S GALORE

 I just love quilting baby quilts on my HQ Simply Sixteen as they give me a chance to try new patterns on a small scale.

My girlfriend, Donna, made this beautiful cot quilt (based on a Meags and Me pattern) with Australian Cockatoos as the main feature, and I offered to quilt it for her.



I chose a pounce pad pattern with hearts to use on the top and bottom sections and used a HQ ruler for the dark blue section.

I free-motioned around the cockatoos and then did a paisley pattern to fill in the background.  


Isnt he just the cutiest !



The reverse was a plain pale blue colour and it really highlighted the quilting/



I'm sure once its bound, there's going to be one happy little grandson.

What a beautiful quilt and the quilting is fabulous Dawn! How do you find long arm quilting in comparison to using a domestic machine? Is it easy to make the swap between the two? Hope your keeping well and have a lovely week! Christine xx
