Brown, cream, purple quilt--pics of back added--feathers and scrolls


Recommended Posts

Here's the latest finish. The odd spaces required some stand-and-stare. Feathers on the border and on the light fabrics. Scrolls and leaves on the darks. A spot of CCs inside the center HStriangles. So Fine putty color and purple thread on top. She provided W&N cotton batting. Her backer was unbleached muslin. This one, with the thin batting and high contrast in top thread colors required me to use tan bobbins with the light top thread and dark gray with the purple. I still had some trouble balancing the stitches. I'll add a photo of the back later so you can see.

 

This one partially finished on the frame was my show-and-tell at the latest Moxie meeting. Here it is finished, Moxies!

 

Thanks for looking!

Here's a link to photos of the back so you can see the two bobbin thread colors.
