This week I had the pleasure of quilting this beautiful quilt by Barbara DeLaney. Can you believe this is only the second quilt she has pieced?
Barbara's use of color is absolutely stunning. I wish the camera would capture the golden sheen on this quilt; It absolutely shines!
I love the contrast of the purple and gold. It's a personal favorite combination of mine, and the pop of bright blue is just gorgeous! I used Iscacord thread in Gold 0704. The spool looks yellow, but my instincts were correct, and the thread melted into all the colors of the quilt. A simple all-over meander design really makes all of the fabrics shine.
Barbara, thank you so much for letting me quilt for you. I can't wait to see what you have next!
