This is my fourth quilt I made and it took me over a year to finish it. It took me so long because I didn't work on it all the time. Sometimes I sat down several days in a row and then let it sit for another few months. There were always other projects that came in between so the quilt had to wait.
But today I am happy to announce, that I finally completed it. The finished quilt is 130cm x195cm (about 51 x 77 inches) big and the squares measure 10.5cm x10.5cm (a bit more than 4 inch).
The top is made with fabric from Umbrella Prints, for the back I used a simple white cotton fabric and the binding is a striped black and white cotton fabric.
The quilting is super simple. Just straight lines along the edges of the squares. (oh and in this photo you can see where I made a mistake. I tried to not put two squares with the same pattern next to each other but somehow I totally missed these two).
At first I wasn't 100% sure about the mix of the patterned fabric but now I am super happy about how this quilt turned out. I also love that it is long enough to cover up my whole body while laying on the couch.
So far I always handstitched the binding onto my quilt. This time I used my sewing machine to add the binding. I was way faster but the hanstitched binding looks a lot better though. The binding is far from perfect but it's okay.
(and now I'm already thinking about my next quilt. There is a stack of pretty Umbrella Prints fabric which I bought over a year ago, waiting for me to be made into a quilt.)
