My husband picked the colours for this quilt because he likes "earthy" colours and I am thrilled with his specification. I quilted squares in matching threads for each of the 25 mini square blocks. It seemed to take forever to do that but I like this kind of quilting - its repetition is meditative and I like to tally in my mind where I am up to after each square has been quilted.
I mentioned in a previous posts how I had used scraps to get the backing to the right size. I was very "freestyle" in my piecing, which explains that funny angles and not straight stitches, but I am pleased with how it has turned out. I have used up lots of fabrics and scraps in the process, which is what this quilt is all about.
You can't see it so well in the photos today (but I will show it in the final post about this quilt) but the binding has curly hearts on it and I love that touch as this is for my hubby. (Fear not, the soppiness is over, that's as slushy as I get!)
Friday, definitely Friday, it will be finished.
