and here is the finished quilt! this was not my first idea, i went through a couple ideas before finally picking the pinwheel design...
this was my original idea, i love plus quilts and i love these two fabrics, especially that dot! but together they just didn't work, there was no contrast and it just looked really dull and blah, so it was back to the drawing board! then one day while browsing pinterest, i came across this quilt and just knew that it was the one!
i loved the pinwheels and sashing and kept my quilt pretty similar to the pinterest quilt. i added a bluey-grey fabric from the feed company fabric line and kept the grey from my original idea. when i got to the sashing, i had forgotten how hard it was and spent hours pinning and re-pinning long strips of fabric together, luckily in the end i got there, because this quilt very nearly ended up in the 'no' pile! the sashing is kona ash, which was really hard to find, do they not make it anymore?
with using the soft grey fabrics, i chose a big stipple for my quilting, i think it really adds to the cosy-ness factor, also stippling is my favourite! also why is it called stippling? it should be called squiggling in my opinion :)
i wanted to keep the quilt simple and used plain navy as the backing and the bluey-grey fabric as the binding, and it was done *yay* it is now all packaged up and in the post, my friend hasn't seen it yet, so it will be a surprise, i hope she likes it :)
