This is the first time I used Heath from Alexander Henry as background fabric and I am totally taken by the effect. The subtle grey makes the colours in the stripes pop out so effectively.
The quilting was an easy decision and I combined outlining the seams with a cross hatch pattern on a stitch length of 4 (I usually use 3.5 but have recently decided that the longer length looks better). What stitch length do you normally use for your straight line quilting ?
The quilt measures about 40 1/2" x 34 1/2" (103 cm x 88 cm).
The back features a very effective graphical print from Timeless Treasures from the I Heart collection by Rashinda Coleman-Hale.
And the binding is 'Oval Elements' in Peacock by Art Gallery. The colours are so fresh and bright and just make me smile every time I see it.
Let's hope this is inspiration for students who may want to join me in the baby quilt class in September at the Village Haberdashery.
