I really like how this quilt has turned out - a mix of scrappy fabrics, colors and prints but still cohesive, with an organized - light/dark - layout. I love working from my scrap bins .... even if it looks like there's been a small fabric explosion in my sewing area (the whole house) .... even if it hasn't made a noticeable difference in my scrap bin. Situation normal.
The finished quilt measures 60 inches x 70 inches and is towards the larger end of what I call "comfortable for quilting". The finished size of each square is 2.5 inches x 2.5 inches and I have outlined all of the seam lines as well as crosshatched through all of the light colored squares of the checkerboard. That adds to almost 200 meters (600 feet) of laborious quilt wrangling, although I think it is worth it for texture that it adds to the quilt.
For the quilt binding I have used a soft grey/white fabric from the Squared Elements range by Art Gallery Fabrics. These prints are perfect for binding and come in a great range of colors.
I love that this quilt is a "I-Spy" of fabric as well as a modern "I-Spy" of creatures, animals, characters, notions, accessories etc. There's a lot to see! Just like old quilts can take you back to a time and a place, so does fabric.
As usual I have updated my Etsy Store.
