Tranquility is Done!
I made this quilt for my niece Amanda and it really was such a joy to work on - the colours and the fabrics are just beautiful. Amanda and her Mom went on a few shopping trips and picked out just the right fabrics for her quilt. Amanda provided 99.9% of the fabric and she chose such beautiful fabrics - I just added little bits and pieces from my stash.
I quilted it with a dark blue thread and used a pantograph called Alfresco. I love the way the dark thread looks on the front of the quilt and it matches the backing perfectly. You can really see the quilting design as well as the texture and it looks wonderful.
I bound it with the same fabric that was used for the backing. This quilt is absolutely huge and finished at 90" x 93". We, my husband and my son, did our best to take photos but it was just so big!
Amanda lives in Winnipeg so I won't be able to hand deliver the quilt to her. I will be visiting her Mom, Glenda, in the next few weeks so I will take it with me and the next time she visits her Mom she will be able to take it home with her. I know she is eagerly waiting to see her finished quilt and I can't wait for her to receive it!
