Okay .... sorry about the daggy clothes line piccies ..... but I wanted to show you the quilt and since it was such a glorious day outside I thought I'd take it out to the back yard to photograph it. Well, it's morning and the grass is still dewey so the clothes line it is ........and on the fence ..... I think I prefer it on the fence ;o) .......Do you like the ric rac in the binding??? The border fabric was much darker than I'd envisaged when I ordered it and I think the ric rac lightens it up really well - it gives it a bit of a lift ;o). I also cut off the corners of the quilt to tie in with the shape of the blocks ...... This was such a fun quilt to make ... and there are just 2 different blocks mirror image of each other!!! And being quilt-as-you-go it's also reversible, which meant I could use up some fabrics from my stash for the backing.
I'm really pleased with how it's turned out ... and I'm making another one now in more subtle tones from the "Beach House" range by Moda..... they're soooo delish!!!
I still haven't written up the pattern yet.... but when I do there will definitely be a giveaway ;o)!!!
Hope you have a fabulous weekend .... the weather here in Brissy is promising to be magnificent!!! We've been promised 30 degrees C ... and it's STILL WINTER!!!! Love it :o)!!!
