I love the colours and the fabrics. In case this is your first visit the fabric used is Oakshott Lipari with Oakshott Colourshot charm centres in the 6 inch blocks.
I quilted it with stitch number 4 on my Bernina, stitch length 2, width 2.5. I used Aurifil 50/2 grey thread no 2605. It shows up slightly lighter than I expected but it was the darkest grey my local quilt shop had.
This is the first time I have made a pieced back. It's not quite as bright in reality and the colour shades are a little off. I used Warm and Natural wadding. What do you think of the quilting? I love the texture it gives, and not a pucker in sight. To be perfectly honest, it isn't as evenly spaced as you might think on the pics, but I don't care, I am so happy with the overall effect.
It is a quilting stitch I had never used before, but will be trying again. I was surprised at how long it took, I was thinking straight lines, but wavy takes a lot longer and a lot more thread. Quite nerve wracking on a special gift.
I did a proper posh staged one too hehe, can you tell I'm happy!
If you are interested there is a Lipari blog hop on right now. This is the first post on May 5th. My favourite so far is Crepuscular, you will love this one. I can hardly wait to see the rest of the quilts.
Would I use Oakshott Lipari again? In a heartbeat, but it is so expensive it would have to be on sale or for something special.
