Summer Strip Quilt
This quilt was so easy, I have no idea why was a WIP for nearly 3 years!! Made using a Jelly Roll, all I have done is sewn the strips together and then quilted simple lines with my walking foot. I had to hang it sideways on the clothesline as it was too long! Matching backing and binding, very pretty, this bed topper could easily be completed in a weekend. Fabric is Sanctuary by 3 Sisters, so pretty and perfect as a summer throw quilt for Cate's bed, I think were going to keep this one.I machine sewed down the binding, huge no no in quilt world, but OMG it was done in like 5 minutes and looks fine! Plus I envision this quilt will be washed heaps so the extra security from being machine sewn suits us. Cate's been sick as for the past 2 weeks so its had plenty of use, and now that it's finished, I have room for some new fabric purchases, yay!
