I finished the binding on this Crazy Love quilt this morning. I am pleased with how it turned out. I used a blue Carolina Chambray from Robert Kaufman for the triangles and binding. I like that the zig zag of the blue makes diagonal channels of color.
I chose to do minimal quilting on this to echo the diagonal lines of the blue. I quilted in the ditch on all of the seam lines and then one walking foot width to either side of the blue triangles as seen here.
You can see a corner of the pink tone on tone fabric Jennifer sent for the backing in the picture below. P was hoping there would be some extra of that fabric!
The binding on the quilt is 1/2 inch wide.
It measures 64 x 79 inches.
Fabrics are from the Crazy Love line coming out this spring from Jennifer Paganelli.
I started my next scraptacular quilt today. It already has some Crazy Love scraps sewn in. It will be one of those quilts that includes all kinds of fabrics. After a couple of quilt finishes I found that my scrap bin is over flowing again and the tiny stars are just not putting any dent at all in that huge pile of fabric. So, I have started a scrap intensive quilt. I'll share more later, after I have a few photos.
I am not the only one jumping into my scrap pile though. Check out the details of Stitched in Color's Scrap Attack Quilt Along. Lots of quilters are attacking their scrap piles this winter. Will YOU join the fun?
