Fabric Tuesday - yet more quilt photos...

Humble apologies to any regular readers for the overkill but if you live in Scotland and get two fine days in a row you have to make the most of them, so me and the current favourite quilt went off to play on the beach for a bit before it finally goes off to its new home in Mexico City.   (If you are visiting from Fabric Tuesday and want to you can read a bit more about this quilt and the charity it is for here.)

We are so lucky to have this beach a mile down the coast.  We hung around for a bit:



and wondered what the "2" stands for.


Then we found a garden where the grass was as green as the binding:


Chartreuse kona - (Kermit green:-)


The novice satin stitch writing on the quilt reads "Soy amada" (I am loved) and is for the girl that this quilt will go to.  It is in lovely variegated Aurifil, which I also used to quilt the pink, and though it doesn't show up so clearly in photos the writing is all right in real life.

I never thought I would become so fond of pink though somehow I had accumulated enough of it in my stash to make this quilt.  Now I promise not to go on about it any more:-)

    1. Hi Catherine! This is so beautiful quilt! I love pink even can't find much in my stash. And I think the pair for it is sweet green. Your beach looks amazing. We have so much sandy beaches here in GREECE and long beaches but not so wide. x Teje

  11. I adore this quilt and don't blame you for wanting to spend time with it and get as many photos as possible!! It will be a hard one to party with, but it's such a wonderful cause. A little girl in Mexico will be very proud to call this hers.

  13. Go for it, it is not like you are going to see this lovely quilt every day. I don't think this parting is very easy :-)
    By the way, I think Scotland is having better weather at the moment then down here, although I am not complaining :-))

  20. Absolutely beautiful quilt, Catherine! The lime green binding frames the pink quilt so well; the embroidered words and the tiny flowers are lovely. What a perfect weather and location for the photo shoot. The little recipient of this quilt is going to love it.
