If you also follow me on instagram you’ll have noticed I’m playing along with Amy’s Creative Side’s IG Quilt Show. This was actually one of the reasons I started blogging, to be able to participate in things like that.
Today’s prompt is a recent finish. I’ve already shown my three most recent finishes and the fourth most recent finish has an embargo on sharing pictures, so I’m going with an “I haven’t shown you this yet” finish that I completed in summer? 2018. My fifth? most recent finish I think.
This was done as part of the 2016 Mighty Lucky Club with Cheryl Arkison’s lesson called “One Fabric, One Quilt.”
Here’s the back of the quilt and you can see the binding more clearly. That is the original striped fabric.
I also did Cheryl’s fabulous machine mitred binding corners. I alternated directions of the binding strips so that the corners would be symmetrical.
