I have finished the purple and green quilt that I have been working on this week.
I spent most of yesterday quilting it. I love straight line quilting and this quilt certainly features more of that. I like to outline seam lines by stitching just a quarter of an inch either side of a seam. I outlined all horizontal and vertical seams of this quilt that way, and then also outlined the diagonal seam of the half square triangle, however, only on the solid linen blend fabric.
I did not need to mark these lines on the quilt before stitching as I use the outer or inner edge of my sewing machine foot as a guide (I adjust the needle position to stitch a quarter of an inch from the seam line).
The back of the quilt is also pieced.
The binding I used for this quilt is a fabric by Anna Maria Horner. It is from the Garden Party range of fabrics, called Polka Line in Raspberry.
The finished size of each half-square triangle is 2.75 inches. The finished quilt measures 28 inches x 36 inches.
Despite not liking to work with purple fabric this quilt has turned out to be a modern, bright and cheerful quilt! (Admittedly I love it!).
The Purple Quilt is available for sale in my Etsy Store. You will find the listing here.
