The backing I had also bought for Blue Medallion and it is a good match for the front. I wasn't wide enough, so rather than attempting a pattern match I put in a strip of Baby blue Kona.
I decided to quilt it with a simple swirl in each square. I've never used a pantograph or a groovy board, preferring to do the quilting 'freehand', so you can see how inconsistent I am!
I'm trying to increase my repertoire of quilting stitches, and this was a new one for me.
I used Kona Midnight for the binding except for one small piece of Robin's egg at the bottom, coinciding with the pale stripe on the back.
The Kona Midnight is a perfect match with the Lizzie House constellations backing fabric:
Size : 46 x 55.5 inches ( it's shrunk a little in the wash)
Front : 2 inch finished squares of a variety of Kona blue and green solids
Back: Lizzie House constellations with a strip of Kona Baby Blue
Binding : Kona Midnight and a small piece of Kona Robin's egg
Wadding: Left over piece of Quilters Dream Orient
Quilted with Superior Threads Fantastico 5006 which is a variegated blue and green on the top, Bottom Line #622 grey on the back.
I'm going to donate this quilt ( hopefully one of many ) to Siblings Together.
This is also another finish ( my third!!!) for first quarter of FAL 2015 with Adrianne and I'm also going to link with Scraptastic Tuesday.
It's my birthday today ( I won't reveal my age as I can't believe it myself). Mr Hare and I are going to London this afternoon, to take our lovely children out for a birthday meal, then we ( not the children ) are off to Le Trois Vallees for a skiing holiday.
