|Lifesavers Quilt ~ measures 46 inches x 46 inches.|
Mind you, I don't consider playing around with fabric and sitting behind the sewing machine hard work. It's a pleasure really and consider myself lucky with my lot.
As I sew I am usually accompanied by either music or TV/DVD. This week saw a re-play of the UK TV series Downton Abbey. Definitely no hardship.
For the back of the quilt (as pictured above) I have used a single Michael Miller print which nicely complements the colors and tones of the quilt top. The quilt is quilted with a grid of straight lines: vertical, horizontal as well as diagonal lines to intersect in the middle of each block. Lots of quilting.
I was tempted to use my go-to black/white stripe binding fabric for this quilt, however I don't like being too predictable and so chose a red/white stripe fabric instead. It's not too far outside of my comfort zone. The red/white stripe fabric is from Simply Sweet by Barbara Jones of QuiltSoup for Henry Glass.
Thank you for stopping by,
