|I had half a yard each of the light yellow (Kona), the duck feathers and the eggs (designed by Martha Negley). As well as a half yard of the Straw binding (Kona again). It turns out that I could make nine 12 inch finished blocks but there was not quite enough yellow for the last two. My friend Lori at Sew Psyched very generously offered to send me a fat quarter from her stash. Thank you again Lori! :) The label on my yellow said Daffodil but as you can see it is not the same yellow. I think the quilt shop mislabelled my yellow and it was actually banana. (That quilt shop has made a few boo-boos with me lately and they are no longer at the top of the favourites list.) Anyway, I think the two yellows adds some depth... don't you?|
|Here's a closer shot. I quilted feathers on the feathers which you can't really see here and hearts in the Xs.|
|I had a layer cake of "Storybook" flannels by Moda. The yellow and grey were perfect. I had to add in some blue though to have a big enough backing. Ah well, par for the colour course on this quilt. It's super soft and cozy.|
|Here you can see the backing with the front of the quilt.|
