x and + quilt tada!
i finally finished my japanese x and plus quilt! two big finishes in one week. if feels good to be able to move on to new projects, maybe a little smaller scale...
i used this pretty peach fabric for the binding. i sometimes like to do a scrappy binding, but this quilt is so ULTRA scrappy already that i thought one color would be best!
i did patch together a few of my favorite fabrics for the backing. the cotton batting that i used was a b*#ch to quilt through, but i do like how it looks after being washed and dried, all soft and puckery. my initial feeling after finishing this quilt was that it is just TOO much, but now after seeing it for a few days, it's growing on me.
i wanted to post this today so that i can link up with amanda jean. if you haven't read her blog and you love quilts, get right over there!!
violet says "happy friday to you all!!!"
