We had a short school week last week and I totally forgot to blog. Sorry for abandoning you like that. On the plus side, I've been getting lots of sewing time.
My oldest asked for a new quilt last fall. I actually thought it was longer than that, but when I looked up when I first posted the fabrics, I was happy to see that it was January of this year :)
I had seen a quilt in a magazine and he loved it; colours and all.
The only thing he wanted me to change was the pieced section of the quilt was originally designed as being off-centered and he wanted it centered.
|my photo editor would not curve the edges of the picture lol|
I really wanted to highlight the pieced section of the quilt so I straight lined it. I had wanted to really heavily quilt the side panels with leaves, but he wanted stars. I love the texture now that it has been washed.
I went with a darker grey for the binding, love how it frames the quilt and matches the backing.
All the fabrics are from Moda's Grunge line. Such great fabrics; I love the weight of them.
