The customer and I chose the colour scheme and fabrics together and I suggested the pattern ( my own). The colours are inspired by Scottish and Australian landscapes, the quilting by Scottish plaids.
I set to work months ago making flying geese, oh so many, and scrappy stars. I love all of these fabrics but a special mention has to go to the Art Gallery Fabrics ones. They are oh so very soft and lovely to work with. The backing is especially soft and gorgeous too.
I quilted this with a kind of plaid style diagonal pattern using a gorgeous grey Aurifil 50wt cotton thread. I bought a 1300m spool and have over half left on it! It is such a beautiful thread to work with and looks perfect on this quilt!
The sashing and border are a pigeon grey.
I am so pleased with how this quilt turned out and am looking forward to seeing a wee photo of the new bambino enjoying it (once the baby comes along!).
