Fat Stash Bee – 1st Quilt Finished

I’ve completed my 1st quilt with some of the blocks I got from the Fat Stash Bee for my month. I’m pretty happy with the result.

As I said in a earlier post, I used a meandering pattern for the quilting. I like the way it turned out. It was my first time at it. It took me about 4-5 hours to do it. The stitch length is not equal. But for a first time, I think it’s not too bad.

For the back, I used a black and white polka-dot flannel and for the binding, a Kona cotton in Tomato. I love the contrast it makes on both sides.

I just washed the quilt and I like it even more like this, with its crinkled look.

My only regret is the white solid cotton I’ve used for the sashing and borders. It is close to the Alexander Henry Starling fabric, but not the same. It is more blueish and depending on the light it shows. For the second quilt I’ll make with the remaining of the blocks, I’ll use a linen/cotton blend in natural. I think it will look better. Still, I think white was the best choice for this one with the B&W fabric I chose for the back. I just hope my friends won’t be reluctant to use it with their little baby girl because it’s white. I’ll be sending them in the coming days. I hope they like it!
