A Finished Plus Quilt

This one was finished and gifted a few weeks ago.


A nice quick quilt for a gorgeous new niece.


The quilting was done in straight lines, back and forth across each cross, changing the direction as I traveled across the quilt. I added the arrows to show what I mean!...(click on photo to see more detail)


I really like the back, using up some older fabric ranges I had sitting in my cupboard.


The binding was a nice dark navy with a lime green ikat dot. Yummy.


I love the rich colours in these fabrics. I'm sure Imogen will enjoy her new quilt.


Talking of colour I thought I'd show my sweet candle stick holders full of colour I found recently. Aren't they fun? If you want to see more on colour, I love the post Kathy Doughty put up this morning on colour very interesting reading.
