I quilted in double diagonal lines in the same way as 'When Lucy met Daisy'.
This gives the quilt another dimension in addition to the horizontal strips.
What I love so much with the collection is that we have small and large prints in addition to stripes that really come into their own as a jelly role strip. But my favourite print has got to be the little deer print. The figures are tiny and even on the small 2 1/2 width strip you get a lot of repetitions.
I stayed with the woodland theme for the quilt back and dug out a rather precious print of which I bought several yards 2 years ago. This is spotted owl in smoke by Alexander Henry. I know the quilt cotton designers have meanwhile moved on from owls and foxes to crabs but I still think this is one of the best animal prints that has ever been made.
For the binding I chose a stripy number in white and red to offset both, the quilt front and back.
