|Nina's quilt close up
I wanted hers to be a rainbow quilt, but just the idea conjured horrible images in my mind. Whilst rainbows themselves are fabulous, rainbow things can tend towards the cliched, the twee. Or look like a spectrum chart. Keeping the design simple seemed key.
Choosing fabric was an indulgence. Seventy in total, ten in each colour. Many, many happy hours.
|Nina's quilt backing
I quilted unevenly spaced perpendicular lines. This was all done on my dear old Singer, so no fancy pants free-motion quilting. I like the lines though, especially with so much else going on in this quilt.
Craig convinced me to bind it in white. He leans to the simple, the plain, the unembellished. He was right.
