My One Monthly Goal for August was to complete my Jocelyn Proust Quilt, which just needed to be bound.
To recap, I saw these fabrics in a Spotlight catalogue back in February and decided that I needed to make a quilt from them, even travelling to Orange to purchase a couple of the range that were not in the Bathurst store.
I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but felt that it would be something that showed the prints off nicely, so with a larger block.
I saw a photo of a quilt somewhere on the internet with a block that I thought would work and quickly scribbled it down. I have not been able to find it again, so am unable to give it credit.
In early April I cut everything out, including the binding to create a kit to make all the blocks. They fitted so well in my new project box. This was my project to take to Scrub Stitchin'.
I made half the blocks at Scrub Stitchin'.
The remainder of the blocks were made over the next few months.
In early July I made the final few blocks and put the top together, ready for my quilting fairy to perform her magic.
Bush Berries was the quilting design chosen.
The final stitches were added to the binding while sitting in the sun on Thursday last week.
Ta da! I'm really pleased with how it turned out. It looks nice on our bed. It would have been easier to add a sashing between the blocks, as there would have been a lot less bulk where the points match (or don't in some cases), but I like the secondary pattern created by the white background.
We've had "Trail Mix" on the bed for the last few months and it is amazing what a difference a different quilt makes to the room. So much lighter and brighter. Perfect for the coming spring.
I used a wide back that tied in well with the blues and shows the quilting nicely.
I will be linking up with over at Elm Street Quilts at the end of the month.
