Yesterday it was delivered back to me and today it had a little photo shoot in a park nearby.
Here's a close up of the quilting. I love me a feather and Mum quilted it for me using the "Simply Feathers" pantograph by Anne Bright. Simple and timeless. This photo also shows my favourite fabric in the quilt - it's a red Grunge fabric by Basic Grey, I think it's from their Figgy Pudding range. I have got about 40cm left which I am hoarding.
My other favourite fabric in the quilt is this text fabric which was in a Charles Parsons basics range. I had about 80cm of it which I was also squirrelling away but I have squirrelled it so well that I can't find it! Well done me!
For their issue, Homespun gave my quilt the name "Snow Much Fun" which was cute and suited their Christmassy theme - but that's just its stage name. It's real name is "Lincoln", mainly because I used an Abe Lincoln quote on the label.
Don't be fooled by the smiling child in the photo below - she was not a willing participant in the photo shoot - she had to be bribed with a Caramello Koala to go to the park. The smile is brought on by a sugar high.
This quilt really started my love affair with red fabrics and now I have quite a few of them. I was playing with the X block which I had used in a recent quilt and I came up with the cushion below. I paired the reds from my stash with a beige linen and did some basic quarter inch straight line quilting. I have to say that I am a little bit in love.
And continuing the red theme - some berries from my front yard.
