The Man of Cloth Quilt is finally finished and bound. This quilt was made for Fr Augustine to welcome him to our Parish and to Australia. When I asked Augustine what colour he would like, he cheekily said,”Pink”. For those that know me I do have a warped sense of humour and was almost tempted to add some pink but refrained from doing so and dove into my Parson Grey Curious Nature stash instead.
I apologise for the photos. It has rained non stopped for the last few days and I have not been able to photograph outside.
The quilt is a simple design using free form lime crosses. It is mostly negative space using the Kaufman Quilters Linen in grey and quilted in multiple fill patterns using a light teal thread.
The backing is one of my favourite prints from Emily Herrick’s – going coastal range – Crab Walk in Grey. I thought the crabs made it a bit quirky and fun. Although, one may have nightmares with all those clawed creatures lying on top of them.
Augustine will receive the quilt on Friday and I hope it brings him much warmth and comfort in his journeys.
