It's been a long time since I posted about this hand quilting project but I have finally put the last stitches into my Anna Maria Horner voile quilt ..... now happily residing on my bed.
Each square is quilted in a coordinating Perle 8 colour (single thread)
Once this was done, I wanted to add some more contrasting quilting so I used lots of different contrasting Perle 8 threads (doubled) to create a grid across the whole quilt
And these are all the pretty coloured threads I had to play with. (Purchased here)
This quilt is so amazingly soft. The combination of the voile (front and back) and the hand quilting makes for a deliciously soft and floaty quilt.
Now I need to get back to some other WIPs languishing in the cupboard.
I'm very pleased to have this one finished.
Hope you've had some pleasing finishes lately.
SO beautiful Andi x
