sorry I disappeared this week, I’ve mostly been living with headaches and insomnia which doesn’t make for happy blogging. I did get to send of my quilt to its new home this week though! tracking shows it as delivered and now I’m just crossing my fingers and waiting to hear from my partner. I really hope she likes it because I would have been happy to keep this one!
my whole theme was texture, so I combined the dupioni silk with a smooth bamboo/cotton blend to make all those great little lines and bits on the silk stand out. I also left some areas unquilted so there would be a little softness mixed in with all the quilted lines. I threw in a couple of lines in pink just to be cheeky.
I LOVE the back! I kept petting it as I was binding and while I was wrapping it up.
to play up the texture even more I made up a pleated square with a little bit of the threads sticking out. this way she could see how there are green and pink threads crossed together in the fabric.
