Well it is sort of a finish as I have completed all that I have to do on this quilt and now it gets handed over to Tarja so that she can hand sew the binding. I cut up leftover fabrics to make a scrap binding, my favourite kind of binding when it works.
Today I also managed to get the pinwheels and yellow borders sewn on this one too. I wasn't sure if I like the mixture of the two blocks and if I had to do it over again I would probably do more D9Ps or more pinwheels but this has grown on me so I am going to keep it how it is. I still need to add a plain yellow border all the way around it and decide on the backing fabric.
I have a cute puppy dog fabric that I might use - just need to get it out and have a look at it with this and see how the colour is. I have a really gorgeous almost 1930s puppy dog fabric that I would love to use but it is more of an aqua blue.
This fabric isn't as cute but it is still cute =- possible better colour but not as 1930's.
Or I could use some clouds - This is a Daisy Kingdom Fabric. Would you believe I bought 3m of this fabric at at Daisy Kingdom itself for about $3 when I was on a Country Heritage Tour and visiting DK itself was part of the tour - oh bliss, the prices!
Another cloud fabric - not Daisy Kingdom but still nice.
Or I may just keep looking!
Think I will sleep on it!
Till next time.............happy stitching!
