When I started making this quilt, I was making it to sell. But as I began choosing strips of fabric, I fell in love with pretty much each piece. And I decided to keep it. So I continued adding strips cutting a few here and there to break up the lines. I also added little 2 1/2” squares of green to add a subtle pop of color. And I used several shades of green to make the double fold French binding.
My photos loaded out of order but I uploaded so many, I didn’t want to reload everything. I figured I’d just talk about them as I came to them.
You can see how I used a design wall to arrange and rearrange everything before I sewed it together.
And once the quilt is washed... oh, I love the crinkly, wrinkled look!
I ended up leaving it in the stack of quilts that were for sale, but I never listed it. So, this week, I will be listing several quilts I have made.
My husband has been off work a few months and had back surgery in April. He’s still recuperating and it will be a while before he can go back to work. I decided to get back to working more and selling more of my handmade items.
