This lovely quilt belongs to Dorothy. It is made from a pattern by Maple Island Quilts called "BQ". It is a great way to use large scale prints. When I brought this quilt upstairs for its photo shoot I was amazed at how great it looked in my living room - great with my purple wall, and on my couch too!
Dorothy requested a panto for this quilt and she left it up to her friend Sherry and I to decide which one. We went with "Fascination". It shows nicely on the back here.
The hardest part of this quilt was deciding on a thread color. I didn't want to take away from the prints or the beige and black framing. Too light a color jumps out on the black and disappears in the beige, too dark a color looks messy on the lights. I wanted a color thread was present on all the fabrics, but that didn't call attention to itself. The winner was this green. Probably one of the "ugliest on the spool" colors I own (So Fine #489), but it fit the bill. When you are unsure give an ugly green a try, the results can be amazing!
