Selvage Quilt.

Firstly thank you for your comments and for the suggestions for motifs for the balls.

 Yesterday I collected my selvage quilt from Sandra at Quilt Crazy. She has done a wonderful job with the quilting. The brief I gave her was something curvy that I wouldn't be able to do myself, to make those big white spaces interesting. She exceeded that and decide to use the colours matching the selvage blocks. So there are feathers in each of the 12 colours on the  quilt ( twice ) It certainly took away the whiteness down the side where the white triangles stood out.  She decided that was a fun thing to do on a fun quilt. Clever lady isn't she? I like the backing fabric too and we used wool batting.  So I am 100% happy with her work. 

 I have the label made so now I need to decide on the binding - probably multi coloured - certainly not white, and get that on.
 Then I will try and show the entire quilt finished. 
 Meanwhile I have my dentist visit later this morning............

Fabulous quilting.....suits your quilt so well! Love the idea of using different coloured threads - after all, there's no reason why only one thread should be used for the entire quilt. I used different threads on a quilt I finished last year and it suits the quilt well. Good luck at the dentist! PS: Blogger wouldn't let me leave a comment on your last post, for some reason.

Beautiful quilting from Sandra, which is no surprise as she does great quilting. She used to live not far from me up here in Auckland.

It's beautiful Ali, Sandra has made a lovely job. I hope the visit to the dentist went well and that you can still afford to eat after paying the bill!

That quilting looks magic. What a wonderful idea. Hope all is well with the dental front.

Oh! Where did it go? The full picture of the finished selvage quilt? I scrolled back and found the close ups....It's gorgeous! I must admit, at first, I thought a selvage quilt couldn't amount to much....I'm very happy to have been absolutely wrong! You did a lovely job, both of you!
