Natural History

It could have been a Friday (or even Thursday) Finish, but I couldn't catch the light to take pictures. Even today is mostly overcast, but still - here it is, the Natural History quilt.

If you're new here and like looking at WIP photos, you can see its beginnings here and here, and even here for the humble beginnings.

The quilt is made with quilt-as-you-go technique and it was fun to play with the different sashings and the scrappy binding. I love how all of the fabrics I used, have some texture of their own, which makes them blend with some backgrounds and stand in contrast to others. It makes it ever so natural ))). Here are some close ups:

Here is a prove of how the colors blend in with the world outside)))

I hope I'll be able to take some better photos of it in the not-too-distant future.

UPD: We did manage to catch some glimpses of sun on our walk in Howth (again, see how colors in the quilt are the same ones as around it):

  1. Wow! This is so gorgeous! I love your colors, how they are spread over all the quilt, your quilting and the stripes in between the blocks. I like the picture with the quilt against the rock wall. This is a piece of art.

  2. Beautiful. I love the colors and the composition. You must be thrilled with how it turned out.

  3. The colors are perfectly matched to mother nature, it's beautiful.

  4. Your quilt is just lovely! Nicely done, and the colors are beautiful.

  5. Absolutely beautiful! I love everything about it :)

  6. That photo against the stone wall...just stunning!
