Earlier on in the week, my Pam Kitty Garden fabrics arrived. All ready to be made into a bright fresh quilt with this lovely cheater print on the back.
Along with the Pam Kitty Garden fabrics, Lakehouse sent me some of their new scallop border fabric which I am absolutely in love with. A perfect way to add a quick and easy scallop border into any quilt. I can't show you much of the quilt but this is the centre block with the scallop border.
What I can show you though is the back of the quilt with the beautiful cheater print making a postage stamp quilt.
And a close-up of the back showing how I join my backs when I'm pattern matching. I press a fold in one of the pieces of backing, pin it to the other, matching the prints and then topstitch. That way you can see all the way through the joining of the two pieces that the prints are aligning.
And then I finished the week off with some lovely new Moda FQ bundles. The first is Reel Time by Zen Chic and is being sent out today to eight Fat Quarterly contributors. If you would like a chance to join in Fat Quarterly Designer Challenges in the future, keep an eye on my Instagram stream. The Second is Feed Company by Sweetwater and will be turning into a quilt for summer days spent at the Beach Hut in New England.
