Here she is! Finished over the weekend, and photographed in all its crinkly-quilty goodness! This first shot was taken to humor the lovely ladies of this flickr group, who happen to have shoes to match their quilts, or is it the other way around? My shoes were purchased way before this quilt was thought up, if you were wondering.
But back to what matters - the quilt! I used some Amy Butler tangerine Lotus prints, which I just love, and added some grey (or gray?) Kona cotton to round it out.
The backing actually took me much longer to put together because I didn't have a plan, and just started playing with the pieces I had left, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. Justin prefers the back, I prefer the front, so lets call it reversible, ok?
I always enjoy a pieced binding so I used whatever 2.5" scraps I had left. I'm trying to preserve a few decent sized pieces of the Full Moon Polka Dots... so using some of the Kona felt fine to me. Am I selfish, yes. Do I feel bad about that? no. You'd do the same, surely!
Quilted by stippling... after much frustration with my machine which is in dire need of a yearly checkup. I think the undercasing is just too full of lint to work well anymore. Mr. Sewing Machine Repair Guy, you'll be seeing me soon. Which, I guess is a good thing because that means I use my machine. A lot.
Now listed in my Etsy shop, ready to come live with you!
Measures approximately 45" square.
