Summer of quilt finishes : yes, I have one quilt less from my to-do-list. Radiate quilt, that I have started way back in February, is now all done. This post is about work in progress.
For this quilt I have used different solids from my stock, mostly Kona fabrics. Background is in white and the accent color is a deep warm purple.
I quilted this top with the walking foot, following the block seams with a straight stich. I am not a friend of dense over all quilting, so I am happy with the result. Stitch in the ditch isn’t my favourite technique. Here I need more sewing practice to “bury” the stitches in the seam.
I have used for the backing the rest of the black and white duvet cover from IKEA with butterflies and beetles.
A few more shots of the quilt. The late afternoon sun had the right brightness to show the beauty and the colours of this quilt.
The binding is in a mustard shade, the same solid that is also in the blocks.
Quilt size : 54″ x 74″
Wadding : 80% – 20% cotton – polyester Bosal Acadia in Autumn
Quilting thread : Mettler Quilting 40 – color 4 Natural
Stay tuned to more quilt finishings, happy quilting
