It is quilted quite densely, in places at least, with random zig zags across the width. It gives a great overall texture and the uneven effect I was looking for – I felt it needed some more wonky-ness to go with the stars. A blue patterned binding (Amy Butler I think), with a touch of Westfallenstoffe moon and stars from the back, and a pieced green, white and blue back (which I’m rather less happy with but it is a bit late to do anything about that now!). It measures around 140 cm by 140 cm (55 inches square)……I think, but I forgot to measure it before taking it to Peter Potter Gallery. Oops.
And the second quilt is The Adventures of Red Riding Hood. I pieced a load of strips of some favourite red, pink and purple girly fabrics and had such fun I didn’t notice how long it was getting – much too long for the width. So the linen border adds a fair bit of width and not too much length. I wasn’t sure how it would look but I think it works pretty well. The linen is super soft and there’s quite dense straight-ish line quilting so it has a lot of texture. The back is, mostly, a favourite Ikea print which is, again, very soft. And the binding is another Ikea print – mostly red with a hint of green and white. Guess what? I didn’t measure this one either bit I think it is roughly the same size as the wonky stars……..will have to do better next time. It was taken to Peter Potter Gallery too.
Hoping you are having a lovely Monday and best wishes for a great week.
