This quilt was made using the gorgeous bundle of Ruby Red Oakshott's that Michael kindly sent. I enjoyed working with them so much I had to go and purchase some more.
It was quilted on my domestic sewing machine using a darning foot. I used corresponding thread colour and 'drew' (stitched) around each outline and then did a smaller repeat inside finishing off with a swirly centre.
The white background fabrics were quilted with a simple straight stitch, zig zagging across each panel.
I was in a little quandary as to which fabric to use for the binding...the orange with purple polka, or that gorgeous fat stripe.
I asked for opinions over on instagram and Pam Kitty Morning came up with the brilliant idea of using both! Great idea and thanks Pam, I love it.
The backing is a lovely raspberry red toile on a white background I've had sitting in my stash for a little while. I do love a good toile.
So that's it. I do hope to get more finishes done early this year, preferably before I begin any new projects!! How about you? Are you beginning something new, or finishing up a few first? xo
