Pine Valley Quilts - Quilty Ramblings

Winterwood Quilt Finished

Winterwood Quilt Finished

The Winterwood quilt is now quilted and the binding sewn down. I am absolutely thrilled with this quilt.I love the texture of the random quilting using beautiful 50 weight Aurifil Thread. I love how the scrappy background fabrics add to the quilt. I loved every minute of working on this quilt, it's funny I am now missing spending time working on it. I will let the quilt speak for itself with all the lovely photos I took this morning. I apologize that there are no full sized pictures yet, the weather is dreadful, wet and cold. So as soon as we get some more sunshine I will take the quilt outside to get a lovely full sized photo.

This first photo is of the latest block added to the pattern BOM on the Pine Valley website, see more details here

Winterwood Quilt Pattern BOM Block Two

Winterwood Quilt Pattern BOM Block Two

 Winterwood Quilt Pattern BOM Block Two was a delight to make ! 

The warm browns and bright reds against the taupe/light background is a cool crisp colour combination. It was winter when I started making the Winterwood quilt, playing with fabrics that would play nice with the crisp reds in my mainly reproduction stash was proving a challenge. The brown reproduction fabrics I had been collecting over the years worked a treat, giving the quilt a coolness that looked like the winter days outside. The Camellia flowers were in bloom, inspiring the large red flowers in my quilt. They also inspired me to create bigger applique leaves in the quilt and this gave impact without being complicated. They also make the applique easy to work on and quick to complete.

At this point and time I have not got all the blocks together in the quilt top. I am still working on the borders, so I have done a temporary mock up of the design so you can see where I am headed with the Winterwood Quilt.
