This post is a long time coming. I actually cannot believe that I cut out the squares for this quilt when I was still living in Boston. I had the BMQG at my house for a sew-in one of the lasts nights we were in Boston, and I cut the squares that night.
I sewed the basic squares together both at Jake’s parent’s house (when we were temporarily staying with them for 2 weeks) and a at Sewing Summit— in OCTOBER. It’s amazing to think that this quilt has been put together in so many places over such a long period of time.
The fabric in the quilt is Kate Spain Fandango. When I started quilting last year this is one of the first fat quarter sets that I bought. I bought it to make a quilt for a girlfriend that didn’t know if she was going to have a boy or a girl. And almost a year later, I still love the fabrics (she had a girl).
I think my style is changing a little bit over the past year. I find myself being drawn to quilts with mostly solids. Which kind of makes me sad because it’s really fun to buy prints (Although I still have plenty of prints in my stash to use up…)
Here’s the back of the quilt, beautiful fabric.
I’ve really liked the look of striped binding.
I did more traditional quilting so I wouldn’t disturb the beautiful prints. I quilted along the edge of all the fabrics, which also created a diamond shape in the center of each group.
And there she is!
