1st Quilt Top Finished

Yay I'm getting super excited to finish my 1st quilt, I added the sashing and borders last night after lots of folding and stacking trying to decide on colour options. I recently bought some MORE fabric (I know, I know) because I just didn't have the 'right' one for the rest of my quilt, of course! I used a pink checked fabric, part of the 30's playtime collection by Moda, to offset the blue and red colours I have used throughout.
I bought a bunch of quilters safety pins today so I can baste it - as soon as I've picked out a backing fabric :) I really am making this up as I go along! Fingers crossed it comes together ok. Jessie, xo

  11. Oh it's so beautiful! I really love that you've used a floral patterned fabric in-between the blocks - that looks fab and really adds another dimension. Gorgeous!!
