daylesford quilt

- progress collage

- a little binding collage showing fabric detail, use & scale

Another recent 'finish' is my Daylesford quilt. It was like following a fun wandering path as I went around and around, it's the largest log cabin I’ve ever made! I used a mix of fabrics - all from my stash - in mellow colours of peachy-pinks blues & browns with "pops" of mustard, including Outback Wife fabrics, Karen Lewis and a little bit of Liberty.

I chose a wide backing fabric, Tula Pink Wonder cotton sateen, so silky and so soft. I had Leeanne from quiltmekiwi machine quilt this for me. I chose an e2e quilting design called 'ikat' - such great texture. 
For the binding I went with a sweet itty bitty print, AGF Mayfair in Promenade Plum. 

Finished size approx. 60" x 60" - a tad smaller than the original, but I'm happy. Thanks for stopping by, Linda

It turned out so pretty, nice selection of colors and prints. Those sateen backings are really nice. I bought a couple more after using the first one.

I really like the end result in this one. It is such a simple idea based around a log cabin, but looks nothing like that when you delve into it. I love the way the rounds change in pattern, size and design. It is a wonderful combination of ideas.

Oh, this is so pretty! It's sort of improv-y in color arrangement, and that's what I like best. I've always liked Outback Wife (miss her and her fabrics). I think you did a great job with this, even to the choice of that Ikat E2E quilting design. What a nice finish.
