It's definitely purple, it's bright, it's beautiful and somewhat girly and it's finished!!
My Liberty Bloomsbury Quilt - started back in September 2015, is finally a finished quilt. I made it bigger than the original pattern by adding the extra purple and Liberty border, so my quilt finishes at a large 80" square. The quilt was machine pieced, however the dresdens were all hand appliqued to their backgrounds. It is backed in a Tula Pink fabric which echoed the quilt colours and dresdens.
Bound in Liberty and hand quilted with a variety of threads (which unfortunately doesn't really show up in the photos). A lot of the hand quilting I did last year I unpicked and re did after deciding it was too far from the edges of some of the large shot cotton dresden squares, I also had issues with some of the batting coming through with the thread when quilting. I used a bamboo batting, has that happened to anyone else
I took this up to the Auckland Botanic Gardens for it's official photo shoot, so you get some pretty garden shots too.
Tonight it's on my bed, just in time for winter!
