This custom order quilt is finished and has already been shipped. As always, these "simple squares" patchwork quilts are a pleasure to work on, and using only fabrics from my stash is equally satisfying. I was surprised to see just how many floral prints I could pull from my fabric stash, for more often than not it is the stash basics (small scale designs like dots, checks, stripes) that tend to catch my eye and end up in my virtual shopping cart.
Quilted with edge to edge straight lines, first ditch stitching all seam lines, then quilting horizontal and vertical straight lines through the center of all squares ~ creating an overall 1.5 inch grid of intersecting lines. Straight line quilting ... still my favorite ...
For the back of the quilt I have used a small scale floral fabric from the Little Red Riding Hood collection by Tasha Noel.
And for the binding (is that too many photos of the binding?) I have used a blue/white floral print from the Liberty Lifestyle - Stile Collection.
