Love grows

Oh how the weeks slip by.  July 28th was when I last wrote about this quilt top.

What a difference some quilting makes.
Linda decided that all it needed was a bit of soft sculpturing with flowers and leaves and it worked.  Very pleasing outcome.

Once again I resorted to making magic binding for a great finish.  I shopped my stash and came up with this fabric that reflected many of the colours used in the quilt.  The mix of colours provided a nice dark flange in the binding.
I don't usually share the backs of quilts but thought this one deserved a viewing - shows up Linda's quilting very nicely.

We put quite a bit of thought into what might go into the back of our quilts.  This back was made up cotton floral fabric panels - probably originally destined for pillows/cushions.  They came together well for this backing.

Although not originally one of my favourite quilt tops somehow the love has crept up on me and I am really liking it now.  Originally destined to be a community quilt I may find it hard to say goodbye.

The quilting did transform this top into a stunner. Great choice for the flange fabric, and the back is over-the-top beautiful. Nice job, ladies!

I never decide whether I like a quilt or not until the quilting is done because it can make such a difference. I really really like this quilt a lot.

Beautiful simple quilting and a great design layout!
