The piecing of this quilt began in January 2014. I had been collecting black and whites here and there-you know how the story goes I am sure, LOL Then we had a shop hop and if we went to all the stores on the hop, I think there were 13 at that time, we recieved a wonderful bundle of-you guessed it-black and white fabrics! There were 13 half yard cuts!! So of course now I have way more black and whites than was needed for this quilt alone. So stay tuned as I have 2 more that just need quilting, they might be on my ALYOF list year too :-)
It is such a joy to be able to take pic's outside again without freezing in the process!! This week 60's and 70's!
I had been thinking I would use the aqua for the binding. But then I happened to pick up this polka dot and when auditioning the two, the aqua made the quilt look pale. I am very pleased with the polka dot.
The only place you can really see the quilting is on the back. The quilt is so busy I just went with a dk. gray Glide thread and used a panto called Fantasia. I think I would be blind now if I had chosen to free motion quilt it, trying to see the path you already quilted would be very difficult!
I have no plans for this quilt but I like it anyway. But if anyone wants to buy it I would surely consider it!!
