Aah, that's better ...

... 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.

  9. Nice job :}

    Hope it doesn't take up too much room in your suitcase (you must leave space for all that fabric shopping!)
