Hello again! Followers on Facebook and Instagram have enjoyed snippets of Pat's super yummy 'Moroccan Lantern' quilt. A design exclusive to The Apple Basket .
Measuring 80" x 92" Pat chose wool/polyester batting and a lovely deep charcoal/black backing fabric, hoping to keep this quilt fresh and appealing enough for Pat's 12yr old grandson. I used Glide and Superior's Fantastico threads.
Keeping in mind this quilt was going to be for a young man we banned any 'frilly-dilly' quilting pushing it's way onto this quilt! Swirls and straight lines seemed a good masculine choice.
After a break over coffee I finally came up with the design for the 'lanterns'. A series of angled double lines to create a diamond effect much like a lantern.
Thank so much Pat, here's hoping your grandson will love the quilt, if not I know there will be some takers...........me included!
While walking on Sunday back from Cape Brett I spotted these Fungi on a tree, I thought they were really pretty. Thanks for stopping by.
