Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery


Posted on | September 29, 2010 | 3 Comments

The title of this post ends up being relevant in two ways today.

The first way relates to photography. I haveĀ  some larger quilts and find them very difficult to manage when wanting to photograph them. Yesterday I noticed the sunshine streaming in the bedroom window and really showing up the quilting on this quilt.

I realised I was better off leaving the quilt on the bed and photographing it there while the light was so good.

The second connection with the title is that the fabric is Moda Sunshine.

The quilt ended up being king sized and was made using several jelly rolls and a dozen charm packs.

I had it professionally quilted with the baptist fan pattern. I really like the way it creates texture and movement in the quilt.

The pattern was simple and gave a wonderful scrappy look, but when it is set en pointe it creates a great look with the quilting.

Obviously, I am very happy with the end result.
