Getting Up Close With My Quilting

 This what I call two color Swirl Quilting. 

I quilted this beautiful quilt for Chris from Dye Candy Fabric.  It was made with her hand dyed fabrics.

When we talked about what kind of quilting and colors of thread, we first thought about a variegated thread.  We decided to use two colors -- a blue and green thread. That worked out perfectly.

As far as the quilting, it needed something with very soft lines to create movement throughout the quilt from each interlocking block to the next one.

You can see the thread colors here.

I bunched up the quilt to take some photos, to see what it would look like on a bed. I know I could crawl under this quilt and feel warm and cozy!

Hop over to Dye Candy Fabrics and check out her blog.  She has the pattern available and also a kit of her beautiful fabrics to make this incredible quilt.

Enjoy your day!

Beautiful Marcia.

Wow I love it!! It almost looks like double needle work. Very puffy and wildly warm. My hubby saw the picture and described it as "trippy warmth". He loved it too. You do great work.
