Crazy Anne



The quilt was made by Chris Serong in gorgeous reproduction fabrics on a striking yellow background.  She is teaching this quilt at the Australasian Quilt Convention next year.

 
This was the quilt on the machine when I broke my ankle last year.  I was in the hospital on the phone to my sister explaining to her how to take it off as I didn’t want it on the machine unsupervised as the last of the renovations were going on.
 
Luckily Chris was patient as it didn’t get back on the machine for several months as I needed to stand to do the ruler work.


I wanted to make the quilting on the border interesting and broke it into two areas mirroring the shape around the stars blocks.



I had a lot of trouble deciding what to quilt around the stars.  I tried quilting feathers but they didn’t look right so I unpicked them.  I was a lot happier with the straight lines echoing the piecing.


Chris entered in into the Sydney Quilt Show and it was lovely to see it bound and hanging.

  1. Amazing!!! Love it. I especially like the soft yellow she used in the border. I think yellow is a colour that should be used more.often
