|Hey Diddle Diddle in pastels! not my usual look!|
|close up of the fabrics|
I sewed most of today and got this top up to flimsy stage! These colours are not my usual choice for this quilt as you can see by the other versions I have made HERE and HERE and HERE but it is for a darling little girl who is only 6 months old. I wanted to get this quilt finished as she is just the right age for this one.
If you take a closer look at the quilt, you will see that I added the purple spot border with pink cornerstones, then the stripe border with no cornerstones and then the large purple border with the fussy cut fairy cornerstones. So you might be wondering... why no cornerstones on the stripe border? To be honest, I thought I was only adding that one and then the wide purple with no cornerstones so I didn't do the cornerstones on the stripe, but when I came to check measure my fabrics I found that I could get away with one cut plus cornerstones for the purple and not have to join it. Anyway, I think the stripe border breaks things up a bit!
I have made my binding out of the stripe fabric also, which should finish the quilt off nicely.
