I finished up my first larger size quilt yesterday. I designed it last fall and then life got busy. I pulled out the fabrics a few weeks ago and got to work sewing it all together. I even did the quilting on my old Singer Featherweight. I am beyond excited to see it finished! My kids were already snuggling under it last night while we watched a movie.
Paper crafters might recognize the fabric. It's October Afternoon's Sidewalk line that was released as fabric through Riley Blake. It's always been a favorite of mine since I love October Afternoon.
I chose a bold fabric (also from the Sidewalks line) for the back of the quilt. I love how it brings out the red in the patchwork.
I decided to use this black fabric for my binding. I'm not sure who makes it. I saw it at my local quilt shop and thought it was perfect to help the colors in the front really stand out.
I haven't been blogging much for quite a while now. It seems I've lost the desire to paper craft much. I am loving sewing and quilting. I think after paper crafting for almost 9 years, it's been fun learning something new. I've even been debating selling a bunch of my stamps. I'm not sure I'm ready yet, though. I love stamps and card making still, but just have not had the desire to do it. Anyway, I do update my Instagram feed now and then if you'd like to follow me over there to see what I'm up to.
Have a great weekend!
