I love the texture on this quilt for many reasons.
You will remember from my previous post that the quilting on this quilt is based on the designs on hand-painted Moroccan tiles.
A big mix of different designs. Only a few of the blocks are the same.
Some up close shots?
I feel like I succeeded with making the transition from tile design to quilted design.
The jewel tones of the peppered cotton and against the gold thread is a combination I could definitely work with again. The gold thread is subtle, a hint of glimmer - not too much sparkle. (But enough for us girlie sorts!)
I know this was a lot of photos but it was hard to choose my favorites!! The batting I used for this quilt was wool - with the washed peppered cotton and wool batting the quilt is very soft and drapes softly - as you can see it doesn't hang so well - but I am hoping it will be perfect for wrapping yourself up in when good friends can not be there to hug you.
