This is the first of a couple of self-indulgent, photo-heavy posts about the wholecloth quilt I made for the EBDQS4. It is currently on its way to its new owner.
These photos are from the back, showing the quilting texture, and I managed to get a few backlit by the sun, with the colours coming through.
I really struggled over the name; the 'block' designs come from a Karen Stone quilt called Cinco de Mayo, which seemed very appropriate, since the 5th of May happens to be my birthday! Someone else's birthday is also in May...
Click on any of the photos to see them in greater detail.
Most quilts I finish I am really proud of at the time, because they represent something new I've tried, or an improvement in my skill. You can guess that is is one of these!
Despite all the quilting, one thing I really love about this quilt is the few sections quilt I deliberately left unquilted; they pop beautifully.
The photo above was taken with the sun behind, and with the co,our coming through, could almost eb the front.
More different textures,
Next up I'll show the front properly...
