It's hard to believe that this day has come!
The final reveal of our + and x friendship block quilt!
This was the palette Carla and I based our quilts on....
And I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!
Here it is before I quilted it....
four blocks joined and sashed in an aqua spot
with brown corner "+s"...
Putting it together wasn't without it's problems....
|Keeping it real....|
That's a broken needle AND a pin in there!
I chose a wavy quilting line from the many 'patterns'
offered by my machine....
And I 'marked' diagonal lines with my Hera marker,
two inches apart,
keeping this line centred as I stitched with my
I found a bargain backing at Darn Cheap fabrics....
Cuckoo Clocks from the "Folktale" range,
by Cinderberry Stitches in orange!
This was such a fun fabric,
perfect for a fun experience!
There are so many special parts in this quilt....
Carla and I even exchanged labels!
The binding is called "Alphabet Soup" by Henry Glass
My quilt finishes at about 68" by 75"
Be sure you pop over and see
what a beautiful quilt Carla has made
from our fun block sharing experience!
