I've shown some photos of this quilt before, but a few days ago I finally got it outside to take some better photos in natural light. Photographing such a dark quilt is quite a challenge, and it took me a fair while editing the photos to get the colour anything like accurate. The first one is closest in colour; the background is a true navy blue, and the border is opalescent sky-blue (MM Fairy Frost).
It's impossible to capture in a photo, but the snow crystal itself is quilted with a sparkly silver metallic thread (Metallic by Superior - it glides through the machine better than any other metallic I've tried).
This last photo was taken in full (but very angled) sunlight, to emphasise the texture created by the quilting:
The background McTavishing is in navy Bottomline (also by Superior) and which for some reason in the photos shows itself with a non-existent greenish tinge. I echoed around the snow crystal and in the gaps between the branches just under 1/8in from the silver, then filled the remaining space.
