It is made of HST's which are a mixture of scraps and fabrics from my stash. I'd never quilted a quilt as big as this before. I initially started off doing fairly intricate quilting and rapidly realised that firstly it wouldn't show up that much as the quilt is busy and secondly that it would take forever. So I changed to doing a simple loop that looks like circles. The bias edges were a bitch but somehow ended up OK.
I bound it with strips made from scraps left over from a Riley Blake extra wide zig zag in white and blue that I had used for another quilt. I added a small bit of left over binding from the Bright Bamboo quilt
I used Warm and White for the batting, as this was the only one available for sale that was wide enough.
Size : 88 x 87 inches
Front : 4 inch ( finished size) HST's from scraps and stash
Back : Extra wide Architextures crosshatch in grey ( Carolyn Friedlander)
Wadding: Warm and White
Binding: White and blue zig zag and Groovy from Caleb Grey Design
Quilted with Glide (40 wt) in grey on top and Wonderfil 80 in white in the bobbin
I'm really pleased with it and it is prettier than it looks in the photos.
Just got to label it before handing it over on Thursday.
