The back is also pieced and although I tried to centre it I seem to have missed that target by a smidge. As smidges are quite small I am trying not to worry about a little wonkiness here and there....between friends!
I have so far kept to just outlining my baskets in cotton perle and the border has the opposite - in-lining if you like!??
I was considering further decorative quilting on the background but for now at least I have decided against this to let the fabrics speak for themselves without distraction. This quilt was made in tribute to the lovely fabrics so I have to defer to them...
The binding is two similar fabrics - one large scale, the other small scale flowers
My label is embroidered on the front in back stitch but not all the way though as this is a double sided quilt and I didn't want to end up with an unsightly mess on the other side
I am pleased with the outcome of this little quilt. It is a showcase for fabrics I love and it does that job pretty well I think. I also love the simple quilting - I'm hoping you agree that it doesn't really need anything more. My embroidered label is up front and visible in a contrasting thread - not so sure I want my stitching that visible but hey 'tis done and I'm not so bothered I want to unpick it and redo it.
So another UFO completed - that makes 3 (or 4 if you count the galaxy quilt as two quilts in one) and 9 to go I think...oooh that's a challenge!
