On Wednesday morning I collected my cream and white quilt from my longarm quilter. This was made using 25 fat quarters of different cream and white fabrics. The pattern is "Turning Twenty" by Tricia Cribbs. I couldn't resist taking a picture or two before I'd had time to stitch the binding on! And this shows a close-up of this gorgeous quilting pattern, "flounce" - it adds a wonderful texture to this quilt, and meanders across it...
...I used a gorgeous cream fabric from the "Noteworthy" collection by Sweetwater for Moda, that was already in my stash. This was machined to the front of the quilt, then it was lovingly hand stitched into place - all 344" of it, and yes I did wear a thimble!...
...this shows the different shades of neutrals that were used - it is a very simple pattern to make, and made with these fabrics it blends perfectly in my cream bedroom. I'm trying really hard to use my fabric/thread stash before buying anything new as Mr F keeps complaining about the size of my hoard! So far I'm doing quite well, although I'm not sure if I can last until the end of the week without a quick trip to Bungay!!
