This weekend I finished adding the last of the sashing and borders to my sister’s quilt and did a little photo shoot. I wanted to show it off a little better than the poor lighting shot in my last post.
The wind wasn’t being super cooperative today so I couldn’t get it to hang quite flat but you can still see the full quilt pretty well.
The colors are much more vibrant than they looked in my dim extra bedroom too!
I feel like the quilting on this is going to be way trickier than on the baby quilt I made. This quilt is over more than 80″ by 80″! That’s a lot of fabric to maneuver through my domestic machine!
I’m really happy with how it turned out though. Plus, I’m feeling a little ahead of the trends. There are definitely some Radiant Orchid colors in there (Pantone’s Color of the Year) but this quilt was started before that was ever announced. Who knew I was such a trendsetter?!? 🙂
I can’t wait for my sister to see this! But I’m having trouble coming up with a good name. The colors are definitely cooler and I was leaning towards something like “Ice Crystals” but I’m just not sure. Any suggestions?
