A final blog post today of the Pickle Dish Variation Quilt and what follows is photos of the finished quilt. This quilt is one of my favorite projects this year for not only is this a unique design but also a great stash and scrap buster project. This project completely satisfies my own sewing brief for the use of simple traditional patchwork blocks made with colorful and modern fabrics.

For the back of the quilt I have used my current favorite backing fabric ~ Newsprint from the Paint Collection by Carrie Bloomston; this was the only backing fabric that I had on hand with sufficient yardage ~ for this is the biggest quilt that I have made this year (other than the Oakshott Kaleidoscope Quilt) and also quilted myself. The quilt is quilted with an all over 1 1/2 inch grid of intersecting edge to edge lines - which includes ditch stitching seam lines as well as using a quilting guide (attached to the walking foot) to evenly space the lines.

And no surprises ... I have matched the backing fabric with my favorite binding fabric ~ black and white stripe by Timeless Treasures

  17. My goodness! I just love the pictures! And I can't help but be a bit jealous of it's new owner. How were you able to part with it? It might be a pickle dish but I see exotic birds/plummage when I look at it. Sigh. So much beauty.
