Poppy - the finished quilt

This quilt for my goddaughter Poppy has been finished a while and it makes me and hopefully her very happy. I love the contrast in the colours and the symmetrical pattern with all the small figurative items that will give her plenty to point out.

To make it extra special I fussy cut all the trees and the dancing girls in the middle and corners. All the other gorgeous patterns are randomly cut.

It's fairly densely quilted in a crosshatch pattern every inch.

I quilted in a bright red Gueterman Sulky 28w threat which I absolutely love and it I think it works really well with the back too. This little piggy print has been sitting in my stash for several years now waiting to be used. I have the same in blue too but I guess that has to hang around on the shelf a bit longer.

Isn't it the cutest!

For the binding I used again a text print that allows you to read little wisdom phrases along the edge of the quilt.


Its a funny thing, I really hate seeing wise phrases on Tees or posters but here in the form of quilt binding I actually love it.....maybe because it's not quite so demonstrably in your face.

And the last picture...promise.
