Another Sunrise

It's actually the same Sunrise quilt from a few weeks ago, but I'm revisiting to enter the quilt into Amy Ellis's Blogger's Quilt Festival in the Baby Quilts category. The baby blanket is machine pieced and quilted, and measures 44" x 45".



I quilted horizontal lines in various shades of orange and yellow, with the lines across the center of the blanket more dense and more orange than the sides.




For the density of the the quilting, the blanket drapes beautifully and has a remarkably soft hand



If you have a moment, check out all the great festival quilts.

  3. I love the colours in this quilt and that you used them in the quilting threads as well. And I like that you reviewed how the dense quilting feels, I'm always desperate to touch :) You're tempting me to grow a pair and try dense quilting for myself! Thanks.
