Finished Quilt measures: 57 inches x 53.5 inches
I have kept the back of the quilt very simple, giving it a modern and minimalist look. The solid grey fabric here is Kona Cotton Solid by Robert Kaufman in the colorway Ash.
The binding fabric is from Amy Butler's Lotus range and is called Full Moon Polka Dot in Lime. I really did not want to use a strong contrasting color to frame this quilt, instead choosing a complimentary fabric thereby adding just a touch of detail rather than color.
I have also given this quilt a little road test today. No! I did not sleep under it! I washed it in the washing machine on a gentle but warm cycle, and then tumble dried it in a warm dryer.
It came out all soft and crinkly, probably a little too crinkly for my neat self, but a light steam iron sorted that out. It looks so welcoming, and feels so soft! It has withstood and passed the wear and tear, wash and tumble test!
These two quilts look great together. You just cannot have too many quilts on the one bed don't you think?
