I have had mixed feelings about this quilt. It is the second quilt I have made from these blocks that I recieved in a charm square swap ages ago. Maybe I have just had enough of these blocks as I have had it sandwiched and pinned, ready to quilt for the last 2 weeks, just drapped over the ironing board, waiting patiently...
Then seeing as the baby it is meant for is nearly 6 months, thought it was time I actually finished the thing! I didn't want to have just a mass of colour in the center like I did for this Disappearing 9 Patch quilt, I thought if I framed each with white, sort of a window effect? Looking back now I think I should have done the white "cross" part thinner, its 2 inches, maybe half that would have been better?
I like the back. I used up the last of the squares so I won't be tempted to make another!
I stippled each of the pink and purple areas seperatly and then on the white, I stippled one long wavy line all the way around. In a nice pale pink cotton. Now it is all washed, label on, folded up on the ironing board ready to post to it's new home tomorrow.
