As promised, I have photos of my (finally) finished pink ombré strip quilt to share with you.
Don't you love seeing the moon in daylight? Kinda cool in my books.
Hopefully the above shot shows the way in which I chose to quilt it. I just used my walking foot and slowly moved the quilt sandwich around to make it a loose wave. I also did my usual "stitch in the ditch" quilting to make sure the layers would be stable and not move around after a few washes.
The backing was made up of three fabrics to continue the whole "scrappy" feel of the quilt. I used Aneela Hoey's "Check Dots" in pink from her Sew Stitchy line for Moda, Tayna Whelan's "Gingham" in pink from her line "Darla" for Grand Revival and Ellen Luckett Baker's "Tic Tac Check" in spectrum fuchsia from her "Quilt Blocks" collection for Moda.
Lastly, true to the scrappy vibe, the binding comprised of offcuts from the strips used in the quilt top, conveniently cut to size.
I am hoping to start pinning together the quilt sandwich for my low colour value quilt in the next few days!! I finally found fabric for the monster and with the tables in the loungeroom set up, it should be much easier to baste. The quilting will be a marathon, but worth it in the end (or it better be).
Until next time,
