[We didn’t plan it this way. Really!]
Just as there were two Di’s involved in the making of Ian’s ‘hands across the Pacific’ Bowtie Quilt, there were two Linda’s as well – Linda Hungerford in Des Moines, Iowa, and another Linda closer to home here at West Pennant Hills in Sydney.
Every quiltmaker knows ‘it’s not a quilt until it’s quilted’ – and here’s Di B with our very talented friend Linda Billett of Artisan Quilting, in whose hands our humble quilt top became a work of art.
She machine quilted it beautifully with a deep blue thread which became a jaunty feature against the white-on-white background.
Since Ian is a musician, choosing a quilting design was super-simple once we spotted this music pattern in Linda’s catalogue.
I can almost hear the tune these notes are playing – and it’s definitely a light and bouncy one!
Thanks a million, Linda B.
I think we have a winning formula here!
