Do you ever find a fabric that you just fall in love with and really can’t bring yourself to cut up?
Well these two quilts are fun examples of what to do. Clare originally thought that she might like to make a quilted jacket with the fabrics however after living with the idea for awhile her mind changed.
Still loving the fabric she added borders and brought them to me with yardage for the backings.
I chose the pantograph Bayside, to add just a hint of movement but not distract from the fabric itself.
The backing fabric was a perfect choice for these quilts and as I do love a challenge I was able to piece the backs for both quilts with one piece of about 6”x18”’s left over! Many of my customer like to have me piece their backs as it’s a complementary add on.
The second quilt was a little busier so I chose the pantograph Star Swirl to add to the movement of the night sky that spoke to me in this fabric.
