I should probably have waited until I'd bound this quilt before doing this post - but I'm just so relieved it's finally quilted I couldn't wait. Don't worry, once it's properly finished I'll bombard you with more photos ;o)
I'm trying to get to grips with my camera's manual function in an attempt to get it to photograph colours accurately. The pinks are not as bright as these photos might suggest - so hopefully I will have worked it all out before the actual ta-da post. It's really overcast today too - so maybe with better natural light I'll get more true colours...
All the quilting is done with Aurifil 50wt in a range of colours - the blue, green and light sections are all done with threads from Tula Pink's collection for Aurifil, and the pink and purple are solid colours (2545 and 2530).
I don't think I've shown you the back of this one yet? The quilting shows up really well on the back
I used the softer pinks that didn't make it into the front of the quilt and made a few simple log cabins. THe solids are Kona PFD and Kona Ash. I used Aurifil 2021 in most of my bobbins (I think I went through about 15 for this quilt - I lost count after a while.)
Now this is done, I can concentrate on finishing up my Marcelle. I did start quilting that last night, but felt like I was cheating on this quilt, so I decided to finish this up first ;o) I might be back in a few days with some more quilting photos. I also need to think of a good name for this one - suggestions greatly appreciated :o)
