Pieced Scrap Border Quilt – finished

27 Nov

A few weeks ago we had a dryish day and we went up to visit my mum and eldest brother to chop wood and stage a photo shoot with a couple of finished quilts.

They have a large and beautiful garden, great for the children to run around in and explore:


So while they did that I stood holding up the quilt:

I bought some yardage in Randi’s sale a month or so ago with the back of this quilt in mind.  It was brilliant value, working out with shipping costs at just over £3 per yard!

So I pieced together some of Lizzy House’s Outfoxed prints (bright green Jewel in Outwitted, Foliage in Outwitted, Tufts in Outwitted and Foxglove in Outwitted).

I machine stitched the binding to the front of the quilt and then hand-stitched it to the back, I had a it of time spare to do it and I do prefer a hand-stitched binding.


Not leaving it quite to the last minute I designed a quilt label, I had some injet cotton fabric sheets (from here) and printed onto that. I then hand wrote the details on with a permanent fabric pen.


At the weekend we went to Joanna and David’s wedding and gifted the quilt to them.  They had a quick peek at it and I believe they were delighted but they have now left the country for sunnier climes so won’t be needing it just yet!
