    Lavendar quilt for customer is finally finished!

    I like most colors, and especially bright ones, but honestly I really don't care for lavendar. so when I was asked to make a lavendar/purple quilt for someone, I agreed, but it took longer than I would have wished to get it finished because I just didn't like it. The basic patch is called a Drunkard's Path, and it's arranged in an around-the-world fashion to get the cute curl-and-point effect. (I do like the pattern, just not the colors.) Then the heart appliques added a neat touch. I quilted it in rings following the colors. I used a heart-and-leaf single line motif for the quilting. I quilted with a Sulky variegated thread for all but the white. I outlined the hearts with white, and in between added another heart, or a single rose, as needed. The white designs ended up getting lost in the white material, but I didn't have the energy to tear it all out and do it again. In the pictures you can see the quilt first as sewn, but not quilted with a close-up of a corner on the 2nd photo, then 3 pics after it's quilted. The 4th one shows the white-on-white quilting, and the last one shows the simple leaf motif on the borders. At least it's finished, and I can get started on my next project! Hope you enjoy looking.

    You did a wonderful job despite working with colors and fabrics that were not to your liking. I have that problem too, if I don't love the fabrics and all the other elements I tend to lose interest quickly.

    your quilting is great. i know what you mean about lavender... my newest tenant wanted lavender walls. as i was painting, all i could think of is the song lavender blue, dilly dilly, lavender green. LOL luckily, i was finished with the painting in a day. i don't think i could do an entire lavender quilt

    Wow, if that is what you make when you don't care for the colors or fabric I can't wait to see what you do when you love something. You did a great job on the quilt and the quilting. Looking forward to seeing something you do like. Lovely quilt. BrendaK
