This unusual and beautiful quilt was made by Marg for her daughter’s 40th birthday. Her daughter likes tattoos, and gave Marg a book of tattoos to use as inspiration for the appliqué in this quilt.
I really like the uniqueness of this quilt, and how it has been personalised for her daughter.
The quilting was kept fairly simple with the appliqué borders being ditch stitched, a background fill around the appliqué, and a freehand allover on the red. As the background area around the appliqué was large I decided to break it with a diamond shaped frame in three of them.
Marg appliquéd one of the birds flying in a different direction to represent her daughter’s free spirit.
