I finished up this quilt a couple weeks ago, and passed it on it to it's new owner. I think it turned out great. This is the type of quilt that takes some pre-planning. You can't just start and hope it all comes together, because it probably won't. But the planning is worth it.
I used mostly prints from Denyse Schmidt's new-ish line for Joann's
and quilted it in a large spiral. I've done this before, but never on a quilt this big. It was hard. Especially in the middle, mostly because I had so much quilt I was juggling. I need to remember this next time I want to try it on a larger quilt. I struggled, and it's a bit sloppy. I suppose I could have tried to do free motion in the middle and wouldn't have had to move around so much, but my free motion skills aren't that great when it comes to circles.
This red binding print is one of my favorites, I cut it on the bias and made rounded corners--again. I still love them.
I used a great grey floral print I have had FOREVER on the back along with a blue tile print from the front. Nothing like using up a yard of fabric you've had forever, right? I think grey works really great with this line. (actually grey works great with everything it seems).
