The Wow Factor Quilt

Some quilts just have a “WOW” factor!


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.

Close-up-centreThe soft sheen from the grey thread, chosen to blend into the grey fabric, highlights the quilting design perfectly so that the trapunto and background stitching “pop”.


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.
