I knew from the very beginning that I wanted to hand quilt it. And that's what I did. I first outlined all the main solid squares but they felt sort of empty, so I decided to do an X inside each square.
I think that gave it just the right amount of quilting without overpowering all the pretty little squares.
I love both of these prints, they are so pretty, and sort of vintage looking, and girly. I think they play really nicely together as well as compliment the quilt top only the way DS fabrics can.
The whole time I was attaching the binding on I was questioning whether I made the right choice. I usually don't use this color in my sewing a lot, and to choose it for the binding was quite out of my comfort zone. At the end, I'm glad I went with my first instinct because it frames the whole quilt so very nicely.
Finished size of this quilt is 56" x 68". Perfect lap sized quilt, if you ask me.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Svetlana
