'little miss sawtooth' quilt

I decided I needed to stop making quilt tops - briefly- and start finishing a few quilts ... so here's one more finish! Those tiny binding fairies were certainly busy around here overnight! My 'little miss sawtooth' quilt is all finished and on my bed for summer.

I do love a stripey binding, don't you? My binding for this quilt is 'Brocade Stripe' by Snow Leopard Designs that I've had in my stash for ages now. It seems to dance around the edges of the quilt, picking up all the colours.
The backing is a large piece of a Kaffe fabric, 'grey stone flower', and I had it professionally quilted by Leeanne from quiltmekiwi in an edge to edge pattern called 'whisper'. The finished quilt measures 60" x 72".

  10. That's lovely Linda. I keep looking at that quilt thinking one day ....
    The satisfaction from finally finishing a quilt is as good as starting a new one.
