Super sized!

You probably think I've sold my sewing machine and taken up scrapbooking.

I've been sewing, and just to prove it, here is my latest finish. It's called Double Crossed 2, how's that for an imaginative name?! I was so happy with my first quilt using this pattern. Here is its picture:






Sadly this queen size quilt didn't fit DD#1's king size bed. So I decided to change the colours and make another. I delivered it today!



Here is a closer look at some of the fabrics I used:

I based the colours on a Joel Dewberry print. Some of my favourites were by Zen Chic. The sashing is a handwriting print by Jennifer Sampou from the line Color Full. I used quite a few fabrics from that line. The backing is an Art Gallery print called Luxe in Bloom, wild and colourful!
The binding is grey and white Doe.



I wasn't so sure about my colours, but now it's finished and I've seen it on the bed, I'm very happy! I quilted it myself on the rental longarm. I'm getting better at that with practice.




I've been busy with other sewing too. More about that next time!
