I finished sewing down the binding on the weekend. I love it! I think it's one of my favorite quilts made ever. I'd love to make one for Milly in a yellow, orange, red, pink colour way. Next year maybe....
I think I like the back as much as the front. I didn't have enough blue just to do a plain background, so I broke it up into rows with some random placed squares.
I quilted it just lines across, back and forth, little bit wonky, to add texture. And here is the confession part. Those of you that read my blog regularly know that this quilt was made with the girls from Around the Block 2. After I posted a photo of my quilt top I received an email from Rachel asking where was her block? I didn't answer her as I didn't know what to say.... But now the quilt is all finished (except for the label) I am ready to confess. I wanted my blocks to come back in one of these layouts here, but Rachel's came back different. Not bad different, just different. And I wanted the same colour all the way around each square. Again not bad different, just different. I put it on the front most people wouldn't have noticed it was even different. Except for me, I would have noticed!! And I'm sorry but it would have irked me. So I decided to trim it a bit and resew it and then add it! The middle 3 squares are from one of the different blocks. The rest of her blocks are in there somewhere too, I did use them all. It actually inspired the blocks for the back, I mixed up the fabric for each square. So there you go, I have come clean. It's my ummmm Grace's quilt and I wanted to be 100% happy with it. And I am. :)
And here it is on Grace's bed. She loves it so much she has folded her beloved Rainbow Log Cabin quilt up on the end of her bed.
