Ta Da - The Modern HST Sampler is Finished - At Last



I did well for quite a while and then life got in the way and the wheels fell off......until November 2017, when I got started again.

I was determined to get it finished.  I had the top completed early last month and my OMG goal for February was to get the binding on.



Ta Da!!  I did it.  Happy dance!



The backing is primarily the light blue floral, but with a pieced strip from offcuts down the centre.  My friend Val did the quilting.  It  is a nice, soft design.


I had to do the bed test.  Yep, that test passed as well.  I am always amazed at how a different quilt on the bed changes the whole look of the room.  I think this will be a summer quilt, as it looks quite cool.

I'm happy to say that my February OMG was completed on time, I have ticked off another UFO from my list, I improved my HST block skills and that all the fabric in the quilt was from stash.  You have to be happy with that.

This is really cool in such a limited colour palette. I must try cutting down on rainbows as this is so much more sophisticated!
