And here are a couple of additional and truly unique quilt commissions;

 

Such a sweet, poignant commission for Geraldine who wished her husband’s shirts used to create a patchwork picture with a Swift appliqued onto it, as this was her husbands nick-name. Gel wrote; Lisa worked with me to create a framed picture quilt from my late husbands shirts which now hangs in my home and makes me smile every day. She came to my house and the design and concept emerged from our discussions and she sensitively translated those into this unique and personal piece of art.

 

Pleased to share with you my latest quilt commission. This quilted bedspread has a silk fabric piece by French textile artist @aurore.pelisson as its centerpiece, edged with grey linen with a piped edge & backing fabric in brushed cotton shirting and is quilted with upside down mother of pearl buttons. My aim was to use fabrics to compliment and maintain integrity of silk textile and importantly to work with Gavin and his partner to stitch them the quilted bedspread they wished. Here’s what Gavin said about his new quilt; I had a piece of silk that I wanted to make something of, and decided on a quilt.  The process was painless. I knew nothing about quilting when I placed the commission, but Lisa communicated clearly, and laid out options, giving her advice along the way. The end result is what we wanted. The colours of the other fabrics, and the use of buttons, suggested by Lisa, work beautifully and complement our fabric perfectly. The quilt arrived well within the estimated time, and pleasantly less than the estimated cost. 

I am thrilled how well this monochromatic patchwork quilt looks. Joe&Rachel wished a cool grey lightweight summer patchwork quilt to keep any nighttime chills at bay, so I used a mixture of cottons, including some Japanese fabrics which reminded me of my recent adventures. Happy Days. Here’s what Rachel wrote about her quilt; Our requirement was for a quilt to use as a cooler way (in every-way) to sleep under during in the summer months – our duvet being too hot and bulky.  We have always admired Lisa’s work and commissioned her to make one for us.  It was a great pleasure and fun to work with her from briefing, to choosing fabrics to seeing the finished quilt – and we love the result.

New year challenge; a bespoke quilt inspired by a cartoon; Cartoon Courage the Cowardly Dog / The Quilt Club. I have appliqued the design onto the quilt and stitched quilting lines along the large patchwork pieces.

Following on from stitching successful patchwork panels (see previous post) for Lip Services’s new production; Mr Darcy Loses the Plot, the skills of the Avenue Crafters, the Crumpsall Craft Crewe, plus our Barbara, a talented solo ninja stitcher from Oldham, were called upon to create applique panels for the set backdrop. The deadline was tight but don’t these panels look truly amazing. Well done and thank you again to all the stitchers involved.

I started my quilts& business via a career in arts&education. I enjoy working with people to create artworks. If you are interested in working with me on a collaborative project, visit lisawatsontextiles to find out more.

Stitching triangular patchwork pieces is always a bit more trisky, particularly with the silky & stretchy fabric I am using. Just as well I like a challenge then... #thursdayvibes
