Hello Sunday bloggers 🙂
Yesterday, I was hoping for bright sunshine so I could take my latest finish to be photographed by the sea. I always find Teje’s photographs do real justice to the lovely things she makes but the light in this neck of the woods simply doesn’t oblige. You would think, in spring time we would have sunshine and showers. Well, we’ve had plenty of showers!!
Anyway, I took the quilt outside to the garden instead to get as much natural light as possible and here is the result. The colours are much more true to life than in the previous post which looked a bit washed out compared to the real thing.
I quilted it with a meander wiggle but did consider densely quilting only in the white areas. I decided that would have pushed the lattice into the background and I wanted the squares to appear to be behind the grid. I also thought about a white binding but decided on another blue frame to mirror the inner border. I machine stitched a blue binding to the front and hand stitched it to the back in the traditional invisible way 🙂 Decisions, decisions….
I almost forgot to mention the wadding/batting which is 100% cotton Warm and Natural. Yep, I splashed the cash on this one! It was wonderful to work with. All the fabrics are by Moda.
Here are some more close ups. I hope you like them 🙂
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. I must get back to the Granny Squares this week 😀
