As you can see it has the royal seal of approval! Finished it yesterday but we had heavy rain all day so was unable to take a decent photo. Today was fine and sunny so I have some lovely shots taken outside in my garden. I think her highness likes this quilt as she followed me around trying her best to get in each shot. She won in the end! Perhaps she just wanted to feature on my blog!
Here it is in all its technicolour beauty! I used most of the leftover strips from my string quilt but still have a few left for another quilt that I've designed myself this time.
I machine quilted along each seam line and tied the centre of each block with matching embroidery floss using 3 shades of the block colour and also tied where corners intersect.
And this is the back. I know, quite dull after the front but hey its made up of old fabrics from my stash that needed to be used up to make way for some fresh modern ones! The green check binding was leftover from a previous quilt although I had to make more for this quilt. For now this quilt is going to hang out in our lounge to snuggle under on cold winter evenings. If you want to make a 'quilt as you go quilt' you can find the instructions over on Penny's blog. Thanks Penny for great instructions and hosting this quilt along.
