This quilt was a delight to make from start to finish. Constructing the blocks proved the most fun since they consisted of such beautiful, colorful fabrics (many of them by Michael Miller).
Once my center section was complete, I added a 1 ½-inch print border to frame it.
Next, I added a 3-inch outer white border. I used the same print fabric for the binding as I used for the inner framing border.
To make my first quilting lines, I used a Hera marker. This is a handy little tool to have around since it creates a very visible path without leaving any residual effects. I find it works best on solid or solid reading fabrics.
Since the blocks were placed on point, I quilted the top with a close horizontal and vertical grid pattern using a small wave stitch.
Here’s a close up of the quilting.
And so another happy ending that leaves me with the question of what quilt I want to make next.
