I literally could not love this quilt more. This was the block I had chose for the 2016 True North bee, the Ohio star. I requested colours in red, teal or black/grey and the choice of 3 different block sizes. I wasn't entirely sure what I would end up with to be honest.
Once I started on my 2017 True North quilt, I thought I could use these blocks as part of the backing on the new quilt. But when I was fiddling with layouts, something clicked and this is what I ended with.
I ended up having to make one 12inch block and one 6inch which worked out well in my opinion lol.
I found the black dottie binding on a girls shopping day. I almost didn't use it but glad I went ahead. I think it really finishes the quilt right off.
The quilting is one of my new favourites, Malachite.
Isn't it pretty? I could stare at this all day.
