French braiding

The combinatin of blues and creams and that dark red that feature in many reproduction fabric ranges is just so pleasing to the eye. This quilt was made by Bev and she asked me to quilt it for her.

She utilised the French braid pattern to make a beautiful top, set off by a narrow blue ‘peeper’ around the border.

Because it had such a busy design, the quilting wouldn’t be taking centre-stage so Bev just wanted an all-over design.
I quilted it in a freehand curly loopy sort of design! avoiding the peeper so as not to pin it down.

I used a dark cream thread on top and bottom; the backing was a dark red with a cream design so the thread sank into it really well.

It was a lovely quilt to work on.
