I’ve just got this one loaded onto the frame but I can’t decide how to quilt it so I’m taking a break and I’ll go back to it tomorrow. I know I’m going to use a gorgeous Nature Colors thread called Sea Foam 🙂
The colours are bright and fresh and the background is a buttery cream, not as light as in the photo. This is one of three quilt tops I made from the same layer cake. It is called Santorini by Moda and, yes, it was another bargain. I think I paid about £18 for it. I cut the layer cake squares in half twice to get four 5″ x 5″ squares from each 10″ x 10″ square then made half square triangles with the cream using a chain sewing method.
One of the others from the same layer cake is this one. I love pin-wheels and I like to separate them with sashes. This one has a white background and little squares from the same layer cake.
I have also made a disappearing nine-patch quilt top but need to take another photo of it! I can’t find it in my clever?? filing system! Actually, I wonder if it is still in the camera………..I’m off to find out!
Yey!! I found them. I’m including a couple of close ups as well.
And here’s how bright the colours really are……
So there we are, all three from one layer cake (not a scrap left), plus the white or cream. These were all really easy to put together. Just need to get them finished now:-) I’ve just remembered, I also made my daughter a cover for her Kindle from her two favourite squares, so it was four items altogether.
My favourite part is hand stitching the binding to my quilts. I suppose it is the finishing touch. Does anyone else like binding?
