I have used so many different fabrics in this and it has been great to raid my stash. Some of the first fabrics I ever purchased have been included, as well as some of my all time favourites, a handful of Liberty prints and donations from my sewing friends. It's such a hotchpotch of colours, styles and images but I think it works. I am getting much better at using up my stash and mixing it all up.
The low volume snowballs are a revelation. Initially I had thought these would just be plain white but I am glad I mixed it up because it makes the quilt more interesting and a lot less predictable.
The quilt is made from 1388 2½" squares. I must be crazy! There are also 196 half square triangles. That means there are 1584 pieces that I have sewn together. And, just to confirm my craziness I am now wondering whether to add a chequerboard border to frame the quilt. I need to think about that and see if I can face more cutting and piecing. If not, the quilt top is already plenty big enough and will look amazing on our bed.
Have a lovely weekend!
