Yesterday afternoon I spent a few hours stitching down the binding on what is my first finish of the FAL, which means Q2 won't be a complete failure - get in!! This morning I took advantage of the sunny weather to get out in the in-laws garden and take some pics.
I am so chuffed with how this quilt has turned out, mostly because it is the first quilt I have made since taking up sewing that I can say is all my own design. From start to finish it is completely unique and that feels good to have accomplished.
I quilted it with a curved grid design which can only be described as 'very organic' as I only marked the first curve ;-)
For the back I used scraps of all the Kona colours some more of my never ending supply of the Ikea number print.
This quilt is going up as a wall hanging above my bed where it can give my hubby a dirty look on a daily basis ;-).
If you fancy making your own Pixel quilt I can't recommend the Caro Sheriden free craftsy course enough.
