The last of my 2014 finished quilt is a riot of colours. This was a commissioned quilt for a friend who will be gifting this quilt to one of her close friend. The theme was bright, bold and colourful with a dash of leopard print in the quilt. I knew immediately that I wanted to use fabrics from Anna Maria Honner.
I have longed admired fabrics designed by Anna Maria Honner and was looking for a project that I could use bright and bold prints. I am so grateful that this commissioned quilt came into my path and I have enjoyed every moment piecing this quilt together.
I have opted for a no binding finish which I absolutely love and hope to do more quilts in this way. Wool tassels has been added as embellishment to the quilt making it feel like a flying magic carpet.
A close up of the quilt will revealed cheerful and bright saturated colours. I have added some flying geese in orange, red and raspberry solids, and polka dots in black with gold and bubblegum provided interesting details to the simple quilt.
Majority of the prints are from Field Study with some Pretty Potent and Loulouthi prints mingled among it.
The quilt is kept secured between layers by hand-stitched tiny X's at regular intervals.
I have enjoyed designing this quilt from pattern to finish and I hope you have enjoyed this picture finished blog post.
