The little flowery blocks ended up being kinda washed out, so I needed to liven it up a bit with some background, so I snatched up some of my most awesome Nani Iro Double Gauze in a lovely charcoal and made it be the back. Oh it looked so nice, but I didn't want to make a bunch of blocks that dark, so I decided to alternate the background blocks with a nice linen. While I was making the quilt I moved here to Texas and some lucky folks got to go the the quilt show and came home with NOT EVEN YET RELEASED charm packs from Moda! One of the collections was Dream On. I wanted that damn charm pack so bad I couldn't stand it. So....I found one, or I found a lady who was happy to part with hers (for $8). I decided some of that charm pack was going in my quilt! So I made a block with just that fabric. I am sure you can pick out. I also added a bit of Heather Ross...because I think her fabric looks great in most quilts.
I love a binding....I once again cut into my double gauze and hand stitched with lime perle cotton. I did most of it at the pool. Such a great place to sew.
Before I bound it I quilted it. I quilted the hell out of this quilt. And I love it. Maybe I will end up keeping it after all...but seriously how many quilts do you need? All my kids have about 5 Stu and I have 3 on our bed, but it is so hot here they are always kicked off by morning. The dog has some since he can't seem to understand he does not get to sit on the sofa.....Ah...what to do? What to do with my lovely Dresden plate?
