Anna Maria Horner, Hand Quilted, On a Whim Quilt

Welcome!  I'm pleased to have finished another hand quilted project.  This is a made with a pattern from Thimble Blossoms - one I have made before - called On A Whim.

The rainbow of shades are from the Anna Maria Horner line, True Colors.  I had a large piece of fabric from her older Loulouthi line which I used for the borders.  The white background pieces are simply a white sheet from Ikea.

The backing is my favourite...VOILE!  So soft and cuddly.  The pieces are ones I have collected from Anna Maria Horner and from Tula Pink.  And, as I have mentioned, the quilt is completely hand quilted.  I used a rainbow of threads that I had, DMC perle cottons in size 8 and Aurifil cottons in size 12.  It's the squishiest and snuggliest.

  6. What a beauty this is Cora! The viola will make it so wonderfully smooth and soft! I love that you used a sheet for the white, other fabrics you had and also used what you had for the hand quilting. It must be a very satisfying finish.
