I was gifted with the best Mother's day present this year in the form of a house to myself for the whole weekend. I took massive advantage of that rarity, by quilting and finishing my Sunprint quilt.
Sunday was spent with the lovely Nat, Amy and Charlotte and I took advantage of the glorious weather, Nat's beautiful garden and an unwilling helper (cough *Charlotte* cough) to get some pics.
|She moaned a LOT!!|
I had a few false starts with the quilting and a few unhappy hours with the seam ripper, but I am really happy with the off centred spiral quilting. I used Aurifil thread in grey (40wt - #2600), which blends beautifully with all the Sunprint fabrics and the silver Kona cotton border.
The backing is the Riley Blake dots in extra wide which I got from Annie at The Village Haberdashery and I bound with the Feathers print in hot pink.
As fickle as I am, this is now my new favourite and shall be booting the rainbow strip and flip off the sofa......
