So, by far, this is my favourite quilt, along with my d9p. I love the colours, so bright, crisp and clean. I love using white. I'll be using white way more in my quilts in the future. I'm very proud of my stippling in this quilt, I think I've finally figured some of it out - the tension, the speed the direction and how to manage the bulk. (note - this is a baby quilt size, so not as much bulk as the bigger ones)
I love the minky fabric I used on the back. It was fabulous to work with. I used spray adhesive to give it a bit more grab when I was pin basting, and it held really well. I love the texture of the stippling on the minky on the back, and the pile gives a little extra forgiveness if there were any problems. I love this quilt.
Did I mention I love it? So, you know why there's a few photos then. These were taken on my snow covered back porch with gusting winds. It was a reasonable day at -17c rather than the -30 we've experience for a good part these past few weeks. The colours are just so much truer
in natural light, you know?
