This is a double-bed or queen-sized quilt that I have made from part of a layer cake of Sundrops by Corey Yoder for Moda, such a pretty range of colours and prints.
The quilt measures 72"square - at 180cm wide it was just a bit of a stretch for Kieran to hold the corners out flat (even though he is now six foot tall himself! Needed another adult but Brian is away today playing bowls for Southland...)
I used a pattern called 'Cake Slices' by Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs - I had won two free patterns from joining in with an online linky party (I think that's what it was?) and have managed to make two quilts from the one layer cake (will share the second quilt when it is finished.)
The backing is made from two coral-based prints ( I especially love the glasses print)
and the binding is a gorgeous lime green.
I had made the top in the school holidays in Sept-Oct but wasn't sure how to quilt it.
Then I saw this video by Christa Watson showing how to FMQ her 'cursive Ls'
and knew they would be great for the sashing.
For the blocks I created a six/seven petalled flower that echoes out to the edge of each block.
This quilt is destined for the auction at the Southland Bowls Charity Tournament next weekend that Brian has been invited to take part in. This quilt was also one of my 2018 Finish Along fourth quarter goals.
Linking up with Myra's Finish or Not Friday linky party - and Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Friday linky party - kia ora to everyone!
Here are some southern spring shots to finish with...
