All the quilting and binding are done and it even got packaged and shipped off. Here is a shot of the back. I hand quilted using three sizes of perle cotton: 8, 12, and 16. The size 16 is a variegated black/ grey/ white from Finca. The size 8 and 12 were also variegated in black/ red and black / grey/ white from Valdani.
The fabric was all sourced via eQuilter.com
The perle cotton was all source via Needle in a Haystack.
I will share the front once it has reached its intended recipient!
I have all the sashing on and the rows together! I was going to put a border on but love the way it looks as it is. So that makes another top done! The fabric I was going to use for the border is now going to be the backing. I’m toying with a couple different ideas for the border.
All nine rows are assembled with blocks and sashing. Now to cut the sashing that goes between the rows. Once that is done and all stitched together, I will move on to the borders.
The quilt top is done!
For now it is tucked away until stacking. I am also waiting to hear in whether otlr not the fabric I want for the backing will be reordered. I can source it elsewhere but would rather not.
The small blocks have been assembled into large blocks. Now to decide what width the next round of sashing will be. Three inches is the current front runner.
The initial pieces were cut some time ago and put aside as other things took precedent. I was able to spend some time and assemble the blocks this weekend.
Yes, there are two sizes there. The smaller set is for a coordinated pillow.
