My quilt is finished, yay! Â Unfortunately the weather hasn’t co operated as yet to use it for a picnic, but I couldn’t wait to show it to you. Â Made from a layer cake of Kate Spain’s Good Fortune fabric and backed and binded with Denise Schmit fabric. Â These fabrics are of a lovely weight and are gorgeous to sew with. Â The batting is of a wool blend. Â I used Aurifil 50w cotton to piece it and bind it. Â I must say it is lovely cotton and it didn’t tangle when I hand stitched the binding. Â I am definitely converted and will be using Aurifil for all my quilts from now on (just want to clarify I’m not being paid to say that, I just like to recommend what I love).
The design is my own and I loved every minute of designing it and putting it together. Â I will endeavour to write a pattern for it. Â Nothing like sharing some crafty love.
Now, I need to have a chat to some weather gods and ask for some lovely fine weather this weekend and ponder what my next quilt will be. Â I do say I am addicted.
Where to Buy:
- The layer cake and Aurifil cotton were purchased through Jane at Want It Need It Quilt it. Â Jane is just gorgeous and is lovely to deal with.
- The Denise Schmit fabric I used for the backing and binding was purchased at Spotlight along with the wool blend batting.
