I spent the last two days finishing up my Pervy quilt. Having fallen hard for Charlotte's original
Fifty shades of Perv Fractured quilt and being slightly responsible for naming the QAL, I really didn't want this to become another of my longstanding WIPS.
I put the final border on the quilt on Sunday and was so excited I decided to baste it straight away, despite not having a clue how I was going to quilt it!! I did a little shopping at the Knitting and Stitching show, whilst helping out Annie on her stall and picked up these Aurifil threads.
I wanted to do an all over quilt pattern, without distracting from the quilt pattern, so I started with a giant diamond in the silver thread and echoed my way out changing colours as I went.

I am really happy with my un-planned quilting scheme, it gives so much texture to the quilt.

I rather bravely used the Kona black for my backing, thankfully there are few quilting hiccups to be seen which is a miracle!!
For the binding I chose the Black text print from the Mama said sew line.
I am so happy I joined in with this QAL and chose a non-rainbow colour scheme (Despite there being a bundle of Rainbow all made up for me at the Village Haberdashery!!). This is going to be hanging above my bed, where it can clash with all the rainbow quilt ;-)
Size: 36" square(ish)
Pattern: Let's Pervalong based on Charlotte's Fractured quilt.
Fabrics: Kona Solids: Aqua, Azure, Glacier, Jade green, Ash, Iron, Steel, Charcoal, Pepper and Black and Sewing guide in Black (Mama said Sew) for the binding.
There are some gorgeous quilt emerging in the Flickr group, I am contemplating a mini in pink and grey.
