Judy's challenge day 8



Ready to machine quilt :-)
What looks like a white outer sashing is the batting sticking out.
Last year I got several 1 meter cuts of children prints, Debbie Mumm, from a nice quilter who is cutting down on her quilt activities in favour of other activities.
She wanted them to be used for care quilts and I committed myself to use them for that.
I have used 2 pieces of blue on the back of this quilt -  one with Noah boats and one with typical Debbie Mumm things.
When the quilting is done I will take a photo of both sides.
I will still use a daily hour - or more - on this quilt until it is done, binding and all.

Oh I like the white around those blocks---it looks so restful---like the sky with clouds floating by or the sea.

I thought the white batting was an outer bit of sashing too... :) It'd look nice that way OR ending at the blue. :)

Patti said...

What a great use of novelty fabric without it being overpowering. I had to look 2X at the fabric - I love the effect!

Cheers!

You're done already? Where have I been? I knew I was behind reading blogs, but I didn't realize that people would be posting ready to quilt quilts quite so soon. Great progress; great job.

It does look lovely Hanne! I'd say a real success!! And from stash!
Great job on having those DM fabrics to use on the back...*VBS* What a nice way to use them.

Karen said...

Hanne, how did you do this so fast? Can't get over how pretty the variety of blues/greens is, just like clear shifting water.

Sweet P said...

I love your quilt more each time I see it. Those are not colors I have used and I don't even think I have any in my stash, but I do love them.

What a neat, tidy quilt - how graphic it is without being 'over the top'.
