Color Block Finish

I managed to get my last WIP finished yesterday, the girly version of the Color Block Quilt.


The pattern is from Bijou Lovely, finishing at 40 x 55. I love that it is simple, giving a wide space on which to change designs while FMQing.  I used the Celebrate Seuss 2 fabric from Robert Kaufman I picked up at the LQS a while back and paired it with some random fat quarters I picked up on sale.  The binding is made from scraps of a Tea Rose solid from Connecting Threads.

I tried some swirls, which are… well less just say less than fantastic, but I am still learning and I am sure it will get better with practice. They are all sorts of inconsistent and the spaces aren’t exactly filled well.

The same goes for the stars and loops. I just didn’t hit the mark with the FMQing on this quilt. It is finished though, and I am sure whomever ends up using it won’t mind. In fact, I’d like to pretend some little one might even grow to love those handcrafted mistakes.
