You may remember shots of this quilt over the last couple of months
Well, I was keeping quiet about who it was for, because it was for my sister Jean, and I know she reads this blog from time to time, so I didn't want to let the cat out of the bag. But it's been delivered, and I thought her house would make the perfect spot for a photo shoot. Sadly my photography skills are not as good as I hoped, and we deleted a lot of the shots (some a bit too quickly Gordon) so here are a few of the better ones.
And a few I took at home
I loved the colours that Val asked for
And I was amazed at the blocks we made for Hadley - my first use of low volume other than grey!
The fabric for the 16 patch was all from my stash and scrap bin. To keep a soft drape to the quilt, I quilted it very simply with a straight line through the diagonals , using Aurifil 50 in a putty colour that exactly matched the Kona Putty I had used.
I finished this quilt in Q1 and unfortunately it wasn't on my FAL list. Never mind eh! It is very happy in it's new home and will be well loved, I know.
