0 In Custom Quilts/ For the Mamas

Sarah’s mama throw

Earlier this year one of my lovely friends, Sarah {of Leilani & T fame} contacted me and asked if I could fit her in for a custom mama throw. She showed me a photo of the fabrics she had in mind and I knew at once I couldnt say no! Working with the classic Loopy and Elizabeth Rose from Jennifer Paganelli’s Flower Power range is always such a pleasure, perfect colours to work with and it is so easy to make it shine. Plus the fact it is highly coveted is always a bonus. Sarah had been collecting her favourites over a few years and I was so grateful when she chose me as the girl to work with them.

Sarah had decided she wanted a ragged throw and I loved the idea straight away. In my opinion rag quilts are the most overlooked of all in the quilting world, maybe the simplicity puts people off? But if you want something that makes fabric pop, is crazy easy to look after (think wash and tumble dry style) and gets softer more delectable with age then the rag quilt is always your girl. It suited these fabrics down to a tee too and was the perfect choice.

And the end result? Pure perfection.

But the pretty didnt end there! Sarah also sent me some stunning fabric to create an apple pie cushion for a chair in her room – this mix of loopy, Elizabeth Rose and Pom Pom de Paris has to be one of the prettiest combinations I have ever worked with. The butterflies on the fabric have special meaning for Sarah and her husband and I really hope I put a smile on her face every time she glances at it now.

Both of these pretties are heading under Sarah’s Christmas tree – I cant wait to hear her reaction when she opens them.

I have so many more completed orders to show you yet, has been a month of sewing as much as I could when I could. Now I am starting to breathe out a little and can show you what has been taking my attention.

Till next time
xx Sarah
