Although it is still officially winter here, it is a lovely warm day here in Australia - perfect for some finished quilt photos...
I managed to convince DH to hold this one up for me - he actually asked me if it was an "old" quilt as it has more of a traditional patchwork look about it.And I think that is why this quilt is so appealing - using modern fabrics in this style gives it such a vintage retro feel.
I used one of my favourite DS prints from Aunt Edna on the back - so with the 180 strips for the trip along blocks, the backing and binding make it up to 182 different fabrics in this quilt.
It was quilted in a cross hatch grid which was quite easy to do - I didn't mark out my lines but just eyeballed them as I quilted.
I really love how this has turned out and I think it is a pattern that I would definitely make again.
