Here it is...
|Denyse Sings The Blues - and about time too!|
The quilting is a made up of lots of squares of varying sizes - if I were able to get the hang of FMQing, I would probably have managed to do an all over interlinked continuous path, but for me, lots of stop-start and threads to bury. After my initial reservations, I am really happy with how this washed up.
I love and probably favour dense quilting, but this is a lot softer and works. I am not sure whether this will be for snuggling or show, it's too early - I am still in shock at actually finishing it!
The backing is a Klona blue and cuts of all the prints I used for the flowers. Scrappy sashing, again with various lengths of the leftovers, with a long strip of white added in along one edge, which makes me smile!
It has shrunk up to about 58" square.
If you have not made a Retro Flowers block or quilt, it is definitely worth a go - I do love how it looks; just hated all the little sashing bits, and there are so many seams, so much pressing. It is not the most complicated set of blocks I have made, perhaps the repetition got to me in the early days, but I am so glad I got it finished.
