Back to the UFO pile and some quilting! I was able to finish this quilt and complete the binding.
The fabric is from the range Countdown To Christmas by Sweetwater.
I wanted to make the star shape the negative space in this one so use the dots on a cream background.
Same fabric in the sashing.
The cream fabric went into the border as well.
I kept the quilting to straight lines. Tram tracks along the seams and then diagonal lines through the stars.
I haven’t done any quilting in the border as yet. I thought I would see how it sits and hangs after a bit of use. I can always add some quilting later.
I used a black with red stripe from the same range for the binding.
I happened to be in Spotlight after Christmas for their sale and picked up a perfect backing for the quilt.
The most pleasing part is that another UFO has become a completed quilt.
Winter has decided to arrive here with gusto. One day we are using the air con and the next we have the heating on. Brrr…. . And we had amazing thunderstorms and a lot of rain. The garden loved it. It looks like we will have to get used to that for a few months now so I will make the most of any sunny day we get for photos.
I hope you week is going well.
