A few weeks ago M-R Charbonneau who is also known as Quilt Matters, put out the call for pattern testers for a quilt she was designing using stripes.
Being a big fan of M-R's, I volunteered!!
And she accepted me!
I had so much fun doing this quilt....picking fabrics was my favourite part....
I went with Kaffe Fassett woven stripes.
What's not to love about that??
Well, my darling aunt, who got me interested in quilting, said when she saw it in progress...
"Oh Patti, I really don't like those colours!"
We had a good laugh over it! She is well into her 80's and doesn't quilt any more, and obviously not a fan of unusual colour combinations!
Wanna see it and decide for yourself?
Now, for the details..
Measurements are 45" x 55"
Kaffe Fassett woven stripes, Kona Iron, Charcoal and Raisin, a couple of shot cottons- one is Kaffe Fassett and one is Oakshott.
The quilting is all done with the walking foot of my Horizon using a glorious Aurifil 40wt thread in a dark grey #2625
Thanks so much M-R! I hope you like it :-)
I think a pattern will be available soon for this lovely quilt!
