It's done! The Innocent Crush Quilt is finished I do love how it has turned out.
Fabrics: Innocent Crush by Anna Maria Horner, combined with Kaffe Dots
Design: Very heavily based on the Sugar and Spice pattern in the new release book Quilts en Provence by Kaffe Fassett.
Quilt Size: 51 inches x 66 inchesSize of Squares: 3 inch squares (including seam allowances)
The back of the quilt features more Innocent Crush and is pieced with 8 1/2 inch squares. I was pretty happy with how well the quilt back lined up. I ensured the quilt top was pinned straight by matching a seam line from the quilt top with a seam line from the backing, both horizontally and vertically, prior to the rest of the quilt being basted.
I straight-line machine quilted this quilt first by outlining the seams of the 16-patch blocks to stabilize the quilt sandwich, and then cross-hatched the rest of the quilt by stitching diagonal lines through the small individual squares. No line marking was required (yay!).
Hand-Stitching: A row of hand stitching in zig-zag formation was quilted along the top edge of the quilt in Perle 8 embroidery thread.
Binding: Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton in Chartreuse (this is quickly becoming another stash favorite!).
And the quilt was labeled using fabric selvage:
