Careful with curves

“I have at last finished this quilt made from your lovely fabrics. I am only sorry I did not get it professionally photoed as it  does not do your Oakshott fabrics justice.”  Caroline Lloyd

2015-04CarolineLloydIt is certainly a lovely result! We had a quick chat with Caroline about how she approached this project and gathered the following pertinent facts:

  • the design is all Caroline’s own and came out of her interest in curved seams and her curiosity about how to work on a large curved scheme;
  • cutting and placing those curves needs careful attention since it is very easy to go wrong;
  • the seams were machined together but the quilting was by hand;
  • it took Caroline three years to finish after purchasing the fabrics because she found she needed whole chunks of day to be able to concentrate on getting the curves right.

Thank you for sharing.
