So here it is! I finally got around to finishing this quilt. Featuring fairies, butterflies, flowers, stripes, spots, checks and little red riding hood. All what little girl dream's are made of.
All I had to do was hand stitch the binding down but it sat round for a month. It didn't help that I ran out of binding; 20cm's to go! So a bit of improvisation and ....
2 different fabrics were used for the binding, one being polka dots and the other checks. Not ideal but I think it still looks okay.
Originally I started to hand quilt it but as usual I was unhappy with it so I unpicked it all and machine stitched squares and diagonal lines.
I used this beautiful natural linen with pretty red flowers for the backing. I got it off trade me for a song and I think it originally came from Japan. I love it so much I will definitely use it for my next quilt creation ( whenever that will be?)
Now I just have to send it off to my wee friend.
