Vertigo

This quilt is another gorgeous autumn quilt made by my customer Phillipa, which was beautifully pieced.  She chose the "Vertigo" design, and I suggested copper thread which really adds great texture and shine to the quilting.  I attached the binding to the front of the quilt and hand basted the binding down to the reverse ready for Phillipa to hand stitch down permanently. 
 
I really must learn how to take better photographs.  The above photograph was taken in my studio with day light shining down on it which sometimes can bleach the colours in a photograph a little.  The photograph below was taken in a different room with light coming in from the side which really shows off the texture of the quilting.

Yes I know, it is amazing how much difference lighting makes. Photographs (well mine at least) can never completely show the real deal .....
