I don't want to uh and ah again about voile as I am sure it will bore you to tears by now but it really was such a pleasure again to work with this fabric despite the banana curve issue earlier when combining it with tana lawn. The softness is just out of this world. Jude and a few others suggested to actually start piecing strips from the middle which is not something I thought about and will definitely try when I make another effort combining these materials.
For now 'Folks and Friends' is finished and is every bit as gorgeous as I hoped it would be.
I quilted mostly in straight lines but added a Serpentine stitch here and there. Unfortunately the Janome Horizon doesn't have a nice programmed Serpentine stitch but I programmed one myself with the help of a splendidly written guide that can be found here (will also write a separate post about this in the next days).
The back is a vintage flower print from Liberty's of London that I bought as a remnant piece at Shaukat last year.
For the binding I used Anna-Maria Horner's pastry print in toast (also voile) and was delighted to see that the colour matched perfectly with the back fabric.
The quilt measures 51" x 65" and is the perfect sofa-cuddle-size. It was quilted with Gueterman Sulky in silver/grey (no 1328) which blends wonderfully with this colour mix.
Folks and Friends can be purchase in my on-line ship here.
