The mad patchwork quilt with lots of small squares is getting close to completion. I have used 546 squares in total and there are very many different fabrics included. Somehow I think it works.
I have loved pulling so many different fabrics from stash and putting them together in this crazy way. I think these sorts of quilts are such a good way to use up bits of fabric, but are also rich for the recipient because you can play games with them; I spy, pairs, same but different, how many? I now know who will end up with this quilt and I am sure they would use the quilt in that way and not only to keep their little one warm.
For the quilting I am doing tram tracks to create a lovely chequered look on the back. This is going to take a while to quilt, and some bits are better than others because of my piecing. But overall it seems to be alright and I know all that quilting will give it a lovely texture.
I raided my stash for the backing and found this fabric I bought at the NEC last August. It's a lovely fabric by Creative Thursday. There is a lot of white on the front so I am glad this has plenty of white but also has a saturated green background for contrast.
I now just have to choose the binding and the quilt will be soon finished. I am sure I can see a Friday Finish coming on.
