Bright Scrappy QATW

Just a quick post to show my first finish for FAL quarter 3. I actually finished this quilt sometime ago but being a complete numpty I had taken photos ( which I hadn't uploaded to dropbox) and then promptly dropped my phone down the loo ( don't ask- it was in the back pocket of my jeans). Anyway, we visited  Madlen in London this weekend and I managed  to take some more photos.
 In the end she chose this one, which was the quilt I had made for her, rather than the blue/pink one I have shown earlier. So here it is:

She wanted something bright, so I think this fits the bill.

I backed it with extra wide  lime green with white spot fabric to continue with the bright feel.

Quilt Stats:
The quilt measures 6ft x7ft
Front made with strips from my stash
 Back: Extra wide lime spot ( can't remember who this is by)
Binding: Kona Valentine
Quilted in my usual wavy lines using So Fine.


Finish Along 2014


  1. Love this. The bright colours are so gorgeous. This quilt feels antique but looks incredibly modern . Great finish Carol.

    Im looking away now- I've seen these scrappy trips all over blogland and I love them so - but I don't need another quilt on my wish list .....

  2. It is lovely, definitely fits the bright bill!
    I have been very close to the same phone problem - but I still put it in my back pocket which is, I guess, pretty daft. Juliex

  3. I agree with Shay! It certainly cheers her room up, doesn't it?
