Well, what do you think of these two quilts? Aren't they incredible? They are so very different, but if you look closely, they are both made from the same pattern. The pattern is an original Cloth Shop Tall Poppies pattern - Spectra dela rosa. (email us for more details if you'd like to purchase this pattern and make your very own).
Above is Lynne who is a regular quilter here at The Cloth Shop. She has been working on this quilt for several months now, you may remember a photo on this blog not long ago of Lynne working on it. Well it was finally ready to give to her sister. Stunning work Lynne!
And below is a photo of Wanganui quilter, Christine, a whole different take on the roses and just as lovely. Great to see another lovely quilt finished!
We have also had a visit from this wee sweetie. Her name is Emily and she popped into The Cloth Shop with her Gran. We thought she was a perfect age to introduce to the quilting world and thought perhaps we should start with a lesson on quilting fabrics.
Here she is with her very first piece of quilting cotton.
......Now Emily, what do you think we could do with this?
