I'm participating in Rachel's Festival of Strings with the above quilt. This little quilt was so much fun to make! I received a suprise package of little string-scraps from Ms Minnado, mostly Liberty of London, and I love Liberty of London. There is something about the little floral prints that I adore. I had some free time and started to play with them. We all know the little voices in our head that tells stupid negative things, right? Well this time had compeletly different voices along the way. I head MelissaP telling me to play and let the fabric talk, Rachel incouraging me that quilting is allowed to be also easy, quick and fun and also giving a nice deadline with her Festival of Strings.
The fabric for the back I got from Muriël during our Double Dutch meeting. It was her ugly fabric for a swap. I like it and I like it even more with the brown quilting. I made the binding by turning the back fabric edges to the front. That is actually how I thought that the binding is always done when I started quilting. I think I will use that method more often, it is less hassle to make and like it how the back is peeking on the front.
The quilt is hanging above my sewing table. It has no other purpose than brighten up my day and it really does make me smile everytime I see it. Big thanks to Muriël and Minnado for the fabrics, I adore them!
