Whoa, that title is really a mouthful, isn’t it? Yikes.
I finished another quilt! I love it even more than the last one.
Pattern: The first Fat Quarterly quiltalong
Fabric: Bliss by Bonnie and Camille for Moda, plus coordinating solids from a bundle by Pink Chalk fabrics
This is my second attempt at this quilt pattern, and this one turned out SO much better. Mostly due to having a little more experience under my belt – pressing, cutting, and trimming were all much more precise, and therefore everything came together much easier.
Since I used solid fabrics for the centers of the blocks, I had some decent sized scraps of the jelly rolls left over. I made a simple coin strip and added that to the back for a little extra oomph. The backing is Kona Azure.
Another first was the binding (which I believe is Kona Rich Red). I decided to try machine binding it down on both sides rather than hand stitching. I still need more practice, but it turned out all right. It certainly went faster than hand stitching, so I’ll give it points for instant gratification.
There we have it – another quilt done! We’re going to be nice and toasty this winter, aren’t we?
