... This is a follow-up from my last post about the manly quilt with flowery quilting. I finished the unpicking (but not the audio book) and then started again yesterday on this quilt. I did the final row this morning , and here it is. I was too impatient to wait until I'd added the binding, but I am now very happy with it.
This is the quilt I will be teaching at Quilting in The Garden while I am on holiday staying with Lynn from Sew'n Wild Oaks.
I used fabrics very generously supplied by Oakshott Fabrics, and have tried to get a photo that shows the colour variations in the fabrics, but I failed miserably.The dark fabric could be anything from jade through peacock to emerald or even purple and the light varies from light grey through olive to mid-blue, all depending on the angle the light hits them. Quite amazing. The thread was a variegated purple which I fell in love with when I saw it. I usually use a very neutral colour for the thread so it doesn't show very much, but I felt that it would work here.
