finished yesterday evening. I was hoping to be finished sooner, but my real job has been very demanding over the last month, leaving me too tired to pick up a needle, and that's tired!
Fabric: body: Solstice by Kate Spain for Moda (one charm pack);
binding: fabric of unknown title by www.stof.dk for MCS (?)
Pattern: my own, but I'm indebted to Amy Smart (Diary of a Quilter) for her Hourglass block tutorial
Thread: Aurifil 40 off-white (2309) for both piecing and quilting and red (2250) for binding.
Wadding: standard cotton wadding sold by LQS
Backing: Off-white Bella Solid
Having had a bad experience trying to quilt this with variegated thread a few weeks ago (see here), I returned to it this week and did some simple squiggles with a neutral coloured thread. I think this is a much better result, and I shall be keeping variegated thread to use on solid fabric.
I love the fabric I used for the binding so much, I'm off to the quilt shop on Tuesday to buy more. I love using stripes in a binding. I'm sorry I can't give the fabric name; there isn't much selvedge on 25cm of fabric.
