A finish for a Client

Hi to everyone,
This is the last finish for this week, this quilt was made by a ten year old girl and is fantastic, it is beautiful sewn and constructed. It was quite hard to decide what to do as the fabrics were quite busy but once we had chosen the thread colours I was off. Three threads were used all variegated,  one was a thread by Superior Threads called Lava, which was a delight to use and the others were two threads by Signature Threads in an aqua and the other a limey green. I decided to treat areas of the quilt differently and used the lime and aqua threads to highlight the fabrics in those colours with the thread. This quilt took many changes of thread to finish and as the threads were different weights the quilting machine seemed to need adjusting every thread change, but was well worth the effect, and I love how certain areas pop out.
Thanks for dropping by Jeannette
