2024 finishes

Welcome to this eclectic assortment of finished quilts for 2024.

Anniversary quilt
finished January 2024
I used the "me sew happy" quilt from these clever hands. The top came together quickly, 16 big blocks from an eclectic range of vintage and modern fabrics. And then I added two rows of extra squares to the top & bottom, one row of extra squares to the sides, and finally the two borders to get it up to the requested size.
I sent this quilt off to be quilted by Leeanne @quiltmekiwi, she used an E2E leaf and vine panto called "new growth". We selected a neutral wide backing, butterfly whisper in Ecru. I ended up going with a Kaffe print - 'plink' in teal - for binding. Finished quilt size 94" x 87" 

'x and +' quilt 
Started July 2023 and finished January 2024
I used a variety of fabrics from my scrap baskets, mainly selected with an eye for medium - light colours, with little accents in something darker. 
Longarm quilted by Leeanne at quiltmekiwi using the 'Gabriella' panto. I have used 'guava' Tula Pink extra wide sateen on the back.
I went for a blending look for my binding, a sweet dusky pink & white stripe, which also works well back & front. Quilt measures approx. 64" x 76".
