Oriental Treasures BOM Quilt, made by Hilary. Quilted by Frances Meredith
I was prompted to put up this post of this lovely quilt made by Hilary, as I have just had delivery of another quilt with the same pattern and fabrics. It was a BOM kit which I believe was sold through local quilt shops. If there are two out there, I am sure that there are many more! The quilt has an oriental flavour and has many fabrics with a gold metallic finish. I have a Fil-tec Glide thread called Prickly Pear which seems to work perfectly with these metallic fabrics.

We chose a simple quilting pattern called 'Dragonwings' to finish it, which worked well with motifs in the fabric and added a special something to the overall quilt. I know that both of these quilts had been in cupboards for a while, so I was pleased to help bring them back into circulation.
