After finishing all the blocks, it was time to put together everything and somehow I didn’t like the look of green blocks. So replaced these yellow blocks with the green ones.
But again when I compared two pictures it felt like both looked great. But I just went ahead with the yellow ones.
But I didn’t want to add the green blocks to the orphan blocks’ group. There came the idea of using those for backing. The next moment I was there cutting some more green blocks from the remnants of green fabrics. When I put together all green blocks, it hit me that backing should be bigger than the front :-((.
So I used all of the extra fabrics and there came a beautiful backing. I just loved this and thought of using it as a separate quilt top. But somehow realized only greens would be monotonous and went ahead with my earlier idea of adding all patchwork blocks in the same quilt.
Since I don’t do Free Motion Quilting (FMQ), I used walking foot to quilt.It took me almost a week to quilt the entire quilt. I know…..it is high time that I add up all the courage to work on FMQ. Here is my big finish!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know that quilting isn’t perfect. But I loved how it came out at the end. This is the first time I used sticking applique method. Petal works were too stiff and quilting on it didn’t make any impressions. Now I know why starch method is better for quilting on it. There is always something to learn from every experience.
Here is the backing after finishing. I just loved those spiral quilting……can’t stop looking at it :-)). I know it sounds crazy…but that’s what most quilters like!!!!looking at their quilt for the 100th time :-).
Hope you liked my little project from this Quilt Along and see you next time :-)).
Till then be good 🙂
