Okay, so no Friday finish post for me last week as I had hoped, but a Sunday finish post is almost just as good, right? My latest quilt is all done, and I'm super excited about how it turned out.
I really pondered over the quilting on this one, and with all of that negative space, I almost pulled the trigger on quilting different motifs, but in the end, I gave into my standby and did an allover tight stipple. It isn't flashy, but it really is my very favorite for letting the design of the quilt really take center stage, and you know I'm all about embracing what I love!
If you're familiar with my patterns, you know I love to incorporate designs that give the illusion of curves, that are actually created with all straight piecing, and this one definitely does that.
As usual, all of my leftovers were put to good use on the back. It's hard for me to call them scraps because they are such large chunks. Most times when I purchase fabric, I buy at least a 1/2 yard, specifically so I can have a piece for the back.
As luck would have it, the remnant bin at my local JoAnn had a 1 yard piece of Cloud 9 Cirrus solid in Amber, and it worked perfectly for the binding, with plenty leftover for another project. Score!
The pattern for this quilt is already in the works, and I'll be sure to let you know when it is available.
