OH, this quilt! I love that the Marsala fabrics are the center of the design, but the background is just as interesting as the foreground.
I love the binding! In the QDAD group, I’ve seen some designs that use skinny stripes in the binding and I wanted to try it out. I used different widths from scraps so I could also get a feeling for proportion. It turned out wonderfully!
I also experimented a bit with my quilting. I recently purchased “Shape by Shape” by Angela Walters. It’s always inspiring to see her work. The spiro-graph and flower petal motifs are from her book. I wasn’t sure how these curvy shapes would look next to the straight line quilting; and was constantly second-guessing my decision. But seeing it here – so lovely!
I am a big fan of pieced backs. Although, this might not be my best work, it was fun to experiment (and use up some of my scraps).
I think my dissatisfaction comes from the green that I added in. I should have just stuck with the diamonds.
The quilt measures 47 x 47 inches.
