This is my...well, I don't really have a name for it. It's very vintage in feel, with fabrics that have teacups, strawberries, little polka dots etc.
this technique as I didn't have enough fabric left for a normal binding. I think this has worked out well as the little flash of white from the faux flange helps. You can also see the quilting here - I used Aurifil #50 in white, using a pattern from one of Angela Water's books.
There's something about a striped border that I just adore. Yours really frames the quilt to perfection. I love the colours in this quilt, and the settings you've chosen to photograph it--!! Kaffe Fassett would be pleased. ;-) Love that half door shot.ReplyDelete
Hi Eleanor, I am part of the New Bloggers group. Thanks for sharing your lovely quilt finish. I really like the white flanged binding. You must have done a great job with your binding cutting as everything matches up so nicely. The barn door makes a lovely show place and adds to the "vintagey" vibe of your quilt.ReplyDelete
