I’ve been battling the migraine monster on and off this week, but managed a few project finishes. Here’s what I finally finished last night, while watching Knight and Day with my hubby. That movie cracks me up.
It is hard to show you a good picture when my quilt holder is only 3 feet tall. Plus an inch or so. But the fact that she did it says a lot.
I followed my gut (and some of your advice) and went with polka-dots on the back. There were too many circle themes in the front to ignore the inevitability of polka-dots. I kept it orange just to make the quilt predictable, but I really like it.
I just stitched about 3/8” away from the zigs and zags, following the edge of my regular presser foot. It turned out great, I think. A few terrible point-matching spots and a little binding issues, but overall, it is great.
Stats: 140 Half Square Triangles in random yellow and orange prints. 55 1/2” x 40 1/2”. Orange Kona binding and the white is Kona Snow. Backing is Crazy for Dots and Stripes.
