First, I want to say thank you for all your nice comments both on my blog and on flickr for my reflection mini quilt. They are really appreciated. Today was my niece’s birthday. Her first birthday. And I had my quilt made from the blocks I’ve received from the Fat Stash Bee ready for her. Her parents were really happy to receive this present. Here it is.
I had shown you the quilt top in a precedent post. Here is the back. I kept the same idea of the four quadrants with the same colors as on the front. The colors were the ones from the fabrics I’ve provided to the members of the bee. See this post for the details on the fabrics. I’ve put a piece of them in the center of the back panel and I also used the remnants to make a scrappy binding. The solid color fabrics are Kona cottons in Tomato, Bubblegum, Peridot and Blueberry.
For the quilting, I’ve done some straight lines on the edges of the sashing. I’ve done loops in the center blocks to go with the loops in the Starling fabric. For the crazy scrappy blocks, I’ve quilted all 3 blocks from the same color as one using random straight lines avoiding the bird from the Starling fabric in the center of each block. All the quilting was done with a thread in natural to match the Essex linen used for the sashing. Here are close-up of the quilting.
I really hope that my niece will cherish this quilt for a long time.
