I understand one of the quilts on display will be this lovely colourful cotton reel quilt made by Natalie.  It is made out of a Kaffe Fassett Jelly Roll.

Instead of a white thread, it was quilted with a light grey thread which sits quietly in the shadow of the quilting ditch.

Natalie wanted an all over digital pattern which gave the impression of the cotton reels unravelling, so we went with this simple meander called 'Bam'.  It gave a lovely even coverage on the quilt and sometimes simple is the most effective.
