I’m excited to share this quilt with you. The input and response to selecting the back was awesome. Thank you for participating. Here it is…the back of the quilt.
The vintage sheet is pure perfection. Soft, drapes wonderfully, and the colors coordinate well with the front. Notice anything different about this finished quilt? More free motion quilting.
Confession time: I have avoided FMQ for so long, but I truly enjoy it. Why did I resist for years? My quilting time has been cut down by a couple of hours. Instant time saver. Loops are my jam for now. I tried meandering and quickly ripped it out.
This quilt turned out much better than I could have imagined. Tiny polka dots on a pale green was the perfect binding choice. It provides a gentle frame around the quilt.
Floral fabrics stretched me creatively especially on the front of a quilt. I don’t mind them on the back and often choose florals to coordinate on the back. Maybe it was the scale or colors in this specific collection that didn’t originally inspire me too much. As I noted in my last post, it helped to chop them into 2.5″ squares.
This quilt is available in my Etsy shop. Wouldn’t this be a cute baby shower gift this spring?
