This quilt has been a long time in the making, you can see the previous posts here, here, here and here. My relationship with this quilt was hot and cold all the way through, with my biggest stall being how to quilt it. So it stayed in the cupboard for 6 months before I finally made the decision to give it to Trudi to quilt. Best Decision ever!!!
Trudi managed to nail the quilting with very little direction from me. I knew what I wanted, be couldn't seem to explain it very well. It was custom quilted with #Aurifil in grey, which has made those very flat solids pop out of the quilt.
Although tempted to use the Ikea numbers (I need a 12 step program!), I actually pieced a backing from stash using Kona Ash and a print fabric that I got from Annie and have no clue what line it is from!!
For the binding I stuck with my seemingly never ending supply of Architextures Crosshatch in grey, so that it blended with the background fabric.
So I now have my very own Space dust quilt to cuddle under this winter, it has ousted all previously made quilts from my affections ;-)
