The Wow Factor Quilt

Some quilts just have a “WOW” factor!

Full-quilt

Carolyn was in the showroom a couple of weeks ago to choose the threads for this quilt, so I was thrilled when she came back to show it to us finished.

Carolyn opted for a soft red, rather than a pink, to quilt the floral fabrics.

It has worked so well across all the blocks and looks stunning on the back of the quilt.

PS: Carolyn used Aurifil Cotton Mako’ 50 to quilt her quilt, the best choice for heavily detailed, show quality, quilting.
