Hello everyone! I'm so excited today to finally show you the Siblings Together quilt from when I was Queen Been (ha!) back in November. I've been thwarted by bad weather making it really difficult to get a photo that did the fabric and quilt justice but I think I've finally managed it. So are you ready?!
The quilt is based on a Giant x&+ block
which finish at 20" using Mimi Chez Moi by Moda with some Kona Snow added in for a bit of calm.
Quilting this was an interesting (read challenging) process! It's the biggest quilt I've done to date and although I started off pin basting lets just say that after some unpicking I'm now a big fan of spray basting!!!! It is straight-line quilted 1/4" either side of the x and + seams which has created some fun extra crosses within the crosses!
I feel so privileged to be a part of this bee that has been sponsorsed by so many generous companies and would like to make a special mention to those that donated towards the making of this particular quilt - Moda Fabrics, Fat Quarter Shop
for the backing and Lady Sew and Sew
for the wadding
And of course a big thank you to all my Bee mates for making the gorgeous blocks for me!
Todays sky ● largely grey and wet. It's getting a bit boring now!
