Scrap Quilt Finish!
I've also taken the chance to try a couple of outdoor quilt photos in this mornings sunshine. I couldn't persuade our chicks to pose in the background of this first one, though, despite using the fence of their run. They looked faintly bemused and went back to their dust baths!
Overall the quilt is 45" square. I originally intended to make the sashing and borders wider, but decided to live more or less within the constraints of typical 'width of fabric'. Of course, as I was adding the borders I realised that as I was making them with cornerstones I could have made them wider at least! A lesson for next time!
Avril recently. A fun design! Thanks for the reminder!
The backing is a bargain from IKEA. I usually make a trip to see if there are any fabrics that I could use as a generic backing fabric once I run out of whatever I last bought - and although I don't love this as much as some of the prints that I've bought over the years, it's a lovely 56" wide blue grey fabric, which has a lot of appeal for me.
Time for me to go and start on the next scrap top!
