Basted and Quilting Plan In Place

I found a spare bit of fabric for the back of my little Oakshott quilt. The quilt only measures 30" x 40" so it is destined to be a wall hanging I think. Or just an experiment in colour with beautiful fabrics. Either way, it is basted now and quilting shall commence any time.


As you can see I pulled a lot of my perle cotton threads for this.


I think some simple stitching in and around the pluses is in order. Perle cannot help but make me smile. Though I was surprised I had so many spools in these shades.
