I thought I had posted about a couple that I made recently, but found I hadn't done that, so here are 2 that are the same pattern, but appear quite differently because of the different colourings of them.
This one for a friend's grandson:
Rather than using a white for the obvious 'ladder' that appears in the centre of the quilt, I chose a softer cream and interspersed that with a light patterned block that has the key colours of the quilt in it: turquoise, yellow and brown. The darkest fabric, the brown also features those colours.
I also really enjoy doing the free form feathers or spineless feathers and doing those diagonally helps to focus the eye in that direction. Having the narrow half inch colour between the cream borders also helps to frame the centre well.
This one is also the same pattern, though I have also added another border onto it.
While having someone to hold it up is great for the quilt, having it flat on the ground does show the quilting more clearly.
So that's a recent couple, on to the next one!
Until next time,
Cute quilts AND quilting!! I really like you border method. It really does set off the center nicely!ReplyDelete
These are both just darling! I really like the narrow accent border as a frame, too :)ReplyDelete
