Bee a Brit Stingy Row Quilt!

My last post about my Bee a Brit Stingy row quilt was here.

I stitched my gorgeous rows together and added borders all around.

So this is what happened next....

I quilted it in the ditch.

I wondered whether I should add lots of custom quilting or not.....

I did have to add some quilting to get my 4" minimum required by the wadding; I quilted more densely in the more detailed blocks with a white background and less so in those with a dark background and bigger scale!  I thought the quilting should be in scale with the blocks.  

I picked this backing fabric which repeats a lot of the colours in the top.

And here is the finished quilt!  Can't thank my Bee mates enough for this dramatic beauty which goes well beyond my expectations...

I am linking this quilt to Finish-A-Long 2016
