I did it! With the a little help from our favourite ginger snooperviser…
I had the Night Sky quilt done and dusted by the end of the weekend.
Phew! When we were putting together fabrics, I didn’t realized how wintery this one would end up looking.
It’s a nice size – about 75 inches square. And the block was super easy – made from two 10 inch squares, it’s easy to whip them out when you get into a rhythm. The pattern is Big Sky, if anyone else out there wants to make one.
The clearance section was a little lean when I went looking for a backing for this one, but I managed to find this pretty black floral that worked well enough.
And can we talk about that binding for a minute? I’ll let you in on a little secret – I love striped fabrics for binding. I don’t know why – I just do. This one came from the stash, and I just love how it echoed the subtle green and aqua elements of the lighter fabrics in the centre of the quilt.
And this should be the last quilt I complete this year. Nothing else in my project list is even close to being a top. And work has gotten crazy (companies trying to get things wrapped up before the end of the year/holidays). I’ll do a retrospect of all my completed quilts closer to the end of the month.
