This quilt is based on the beautiful Fruit Salad quilt designed by Liza Prior Lucy and found in Kaffe Fassetts book Quilts en Provence (pub. 2010).
Liza Prior Lucys quilt Fruit Salad Quilt
Kaffe Fassett's Striped Vase fabric is delightful as the backing for this quilt.
I had a lot of fun quilting this one. I really didn't have a plan to start with, so I decided firstly to do some hand quilted straight lines using Perle 8 threads in various colours.
I felt it needed a little more than that so I added tan machine quilted lines in between.
Still not satisfied I decided to add some machined curvy zig zag lines in coloured threads.
Lastly the border was hand quilted with a cream perle 8. Very happy now!!!
The binding is a gorgeous lime green Japanese fabric.
It is so nice to have a finished quilt! Have you had a finish lately?
