I finished my Shimmer Quilt as I rewatched the first season of Poldark , which is probably the reason I finished it so quickly. Are you watching? If not, I highly recommend it.
These blocks are pretty simple to make, and it was fun picking fabrics for each block. I tried to stick with muted, less bright colors...and it feels perfect for fall.
Yellow seems to be my go to color for binding lately. This print is by April Rhodes, from her Bound line. (I just realized I used Bound fabric for the binding, it was meant to be).
For the backing I used a Cotton and Steel print that I found for a steal at fabric.com. It seemed a perfect fit to offset the bold colors on the front.
for the quilting, I stitched in the ditch horizontally and vertically, and then some diagonal coss-hatch. My quilting choices have definitely evolved over the years, I find myself trying to hide my quilting lately.
