Now you can see how nicely it all goes together! I absolutely love snuggling up under this quilt. It makes me happy.
I don’t understand it. These are not my typical colours at all, but there’s just something about them. So much so that when I bought the layer cake of Winter’s Lane, I couldn’t bring myself to cut into it – simply sewed the squares together in old school patchwork style ;)
I backed it with polar fleece – my new fave way to finish quilts. It makes it so soft and warm. I didn’t bother with binding – just a pillowcase fliparoo and then some straight line quilting to keep it all in place.
I quilted either side of the seams so ended up with a bit of a grid pattern happening. I do love my straight line quilting
It goes quite nicely with my paper pieced Cardinal cushion which was made with the leftover squares from my layer cake. (The pattern is a freebie in my Craftsy shop by the way!).
Here’s the full quilt top – yep I’m being lazy and recycling the flimsy picture but that hasn’t changed so I think it’s safe to use again!
Feeling very snug and cosy as we head into winter now. I’m definitely a cold weather kinda gal. Think I’ll be rather sad when the weather starts warming up and I have to pack this away for a few months!
Linking up with Let's Get Acquainted which is at Lucy's place this week.
