Here she is- Colour Collage (named so because it strikes me as a collage of fabrics from my stash).
I straight-line quilted it through the centre of the fabric strips going horizontally. One person (Kymberly, a follower here at my blog) suggested doing a big spiral pattern. That is a GENIUS idea, but having never tried it before and wanting a quick finish, I went for something easier. If I make another one of these, spiral quilting is a MUST. I bound it using leftover binding (how awesome is that?)- half Lizzy House Jewels in turquoise and half Kona Jade. I love the deep teal/turquoise with the rest of the quilt.
|The backing is this delightful bear fabric. I love it because it is turquoise, I got it on clearance ages ago on a shop hop, and one of the baby's nicknames is Hungry Bear. Perfect!|
This is just lovely!! And those bears! So perfect!ReplyDelete
