    This was a pattern I purchased and made with all hand dyed fabrics included. It was a fun project - I know it doesn't match anything specific in my dining room, but I think it adds a softness to the room.

    Gorgeous! It is a piece of art and does not have to "match" but if it bothers you..... it would "match" in my dining room :mrgreen:

    Love it!! I think it's the same one that I have but haven't made yet. How did you quilt it? Your quilting shows the most on the gray border in the picture.

    Thanks - I took it to my lqs to have it quilted - with black thread as I wanted something a bit dramatic to show up, in case I decided to hang it high in my foyer. I think the photo pattern I purchased shows it being quilted with gray - which would have blended into the fabrics more. I did not dye the fabric, luckily it came that way. I enjoyed working with hand dyed fabric, but that is one hobby I just can't include with all the other interests I have! I did as the pattern suggested, and pre-washed, it did bleed quite alot, even with proper preparation.
