I took my machine away with a a limited amount of material which was the best thing I did as I like how it turned out in the end. I ran out of white and decided to sash with the polka dots which I was not sure about at the beginning but luckily I grew to like it. Once I finished the top I turned to the back and decided that as I only had a little polka dot left I would have to get creative and for some reason I decided (a total quilting beginner) that I would create her name on the back of the quilt. I drew out a few ideas and then had to work out how to create half square triangles for some of the letters. When I gave the quilt to Lily yesterday she loved it especially the fact it had her name on it so it was worth it. Once I had pieced the letters together I hunted for some fabric to make up the rest of the back and used more of the Lotte Jansdotter Echo and some Moda Marble fabric that I made into tube station brick panels (at least that is what I had in mind) when I put them together. The binding is from Riley Blake.

I love this quilt even though the points disappear, the quilting in the ditch is wonky and generally it is not perfect but I am still learning...

Thank you for dropping by. I am trying to decide on my next project which will be a quilt for Siblings Together, some pillows, a table runner, a lap quilt and lots more.
