This quilt started life as a travelling quilt bee with the Bumbling Honeys quilt bee. We each made a starter block ( in theory anyway!) and it was posted around each bee member to add blocks according to our specifications. I specified a limited palette of solids only fabric in a mid century modern design. It more than exceeded my expectations, with some lovely touches.
Sadly I'm very disappointed by my quilting. It looks fantastic from a distance, and I used it as a practice piece. However, I was having tremendous tension problems and the back is dreadful. Fortunately , I'm going to use it as a wall hanging, so the back won't show.It's also quite small so perfect for this use.
Some of the quilting designs worked better than others. I'm not a fan of feathers and prefer the more graphic straight line style.
I added a binding in a black solid fabric which frames it well I think.
I've added a hanging sleeve to the back.
