London Quilt Spa Day

One of the projects that has kept me quite busy is a quilt to gift to my nephew and bride for their upcoming wedding. My sister suggested a palette of red, white, and blue with a theme of London. After considering a bunch of different ideas, I decided to have fun with quarter circles and orange peels in the requested colorway with a bit of orange for an extra pop of color. For the back, I found this great panel using the same colorway. My plan is to surround the panel with the blue fabric.

My quilt is now at the Spa! In other words, I've dropped it off with my LAQ. I used to have all my quilts LAQed but now I just do so for special quilts (larger than baby sized) that will be gifted. I can't wait to get the quilt back and see the transformation that quilting brings!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. What a great milestone to get to for this quilt. I hope you are on track to have it ready in plenty of time for the celebration without stress.

  2. It's a beautiful quilt top! I love the curves, and your added pops of orange really give it life. Sometimes I wish I could drop a quilt top off at the spa, but after 22 years of only quilting my quilts myself on my domestic machine, I just can't bring myself to do it. No doubt this one will come back to you gorgeously quilted, and ready for your last touch of binding. What a great wedding gift!


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
