This quilt took 3 days to make…the quilter 1 week to quilt…and 6 weeks for me to get the motivation to bind it. Geesh. I’m so glad I finally found that motivation though because I love it.
The backing is a flat sheet.
I get lots of questions about using flat sheets as backings. I buy them when I see single flat sheets on sale if they are good quality, then I wash/dry them and trim off the edges. It’s a heck-o-lot cheaper than buying designer yardage and if you buy nice sheets they feel the same or better.
The quilting was done by my friend Kathy.
She did that freehand…which requires a lot of patience…which is why I am not a long arm quilter. It adds such a beautiful texture to a super simple quilt. If you need quilting she is affordable and fabulous.
The tutorial and a photo of the whole quilt top can be found here.
