Do you remember this quilt? I didn't know how to finish it off and asked for your advice. Well I finally decided that I needed to make room in my WIP box.
I decided to go with a wide white border, pieced border and orange gingham binding. Thanks Katy and Holly for your good ideas.
I just love this quilt. I backed it with fleece so that it is extra warm. I know very important now that it is Spring. But we will appreciate it once Winter comes again and lets face it the North European summer is not exactly reliably hot.
There are no designer fabrics in this quilt and very few new fabrics. I used mostly reused fabrics from bedcovers, sheets and scraps that I have picked up at the local flea markets. I also used a lot of my screenprinted robots, vehicles and polka dots. In each of the corners there is a single robot. I used a piece of paper to block off the majority of the screen and then printed single robots.Have I mentioned that I love it?
I kept the quilting very simple. Just diagonally across each of the squares and then lines on the pieced border. Getting the tension right through the quilt and the fleece was a little problematic and I have to admit that I had to step away from the quilt on a couple of occasions!
Right on to the next WIP!
