I have been waiting all week for some bright weather so that I can get photos of the fairy quilt, but it’s been grey and snowing all week. Today is a bit bright so I’ve got some photos to show.
The finished quilt is 42 “ by 41 1/2 “. The fairy print in yellow and the panels just have “Becky Kelly for Timeless Treasures” on the selvedge. The backing is “Midnight Garden” Galaxy Collection by E. E. Schenck Company. The binding is “Fusions” from Robert Kaufman.
Quilting is stitch-in-the-ditch around all the panels, a zigzag around the panel borders and lots of stars. If I was doing it again I would make the stars in the sashing between the blocks more random, like I did with the outside sashing stars.
This quilt is for DD#1’s neighbour’s baby. Her mother is quite young and her father was killed in a motorcycle accident before she was born, so she needs extra fairy dust in her life.
A reminder that tomorrow (Saturday), or today depending where you are , is March Christmas Quilt-a-long day.
This month hosted by the lovely Joanna.
I’ll be working on part two of my Christmas mystery quilt. See you there!
