My Favorite Patchwork Quilt
I have finally finished this quilt. I first started it a year and a half ago, remember this post? I wanted to make a quilt with some of my favorite fabrics Flea Market Fancy, Katie Jump Rope & the ladybugs from Flutterby. Sometimes making a simple patchwork quilt is called for and I really thought it would make this quilt perfect. I cut the squares at 4.5" so they are finished at 4".
The quilt is 58" x 78" and I quilted it in wavy lines around 2" apart. I am actually really in love with the back of this quilt. I had initially made the top super long without realizing it and once I did I unpicked a row of blocks and used them for the back of the quilt along with the blue and orange geranium print from Kaite Jump Rope. I love the back.
Then I bound it in the green tiles print from Flea Market Fancy since green is my favorite color!
I love so many things about this quilt and I am very happy that I used my hoarded fabric yet again in a quilt. I am really on a roll with using up my favorite fabrics.
Here's to finishing a quilt that has been sitting in my sewing room for a LONG time :) It feels so good to get this one done and not sitting starring at me to get it done.
