grey and white herringbone quilt.


Yep, another one bites the dust.



This time, with a slightly softer yellow binding.


And a lively backing fabric called Silent Cinema by Jenean Morrison for FreeSpirit fabrics. Centering this puppy on the back proved to be a bit of a chore, surprisingly so. I ended up choosing my 'center' and ironing the fabric into quadrants taking care to split each of the tiny little flowers that that run the warp and weft into halves. Then I carefully pinned it to registration marks I made on my batting that corresponded with the center marks on all four sides of the quilt. Phew! Avoidance of this task might be why I use non-directional prints and solids so much in my quilting. Do you have any tricks for centering backing  fabric? I'd love to hear...


Go make something!

I just finished a yellow and grey herringbone, inspired by you. I'm going to use teal for the binding. It is so fun to see what you are coming up with.

I have centering marks on my work table. I tape toothpicks to those marks when I'm ready to pin baste a quilt. I can feel the toothpicks through all the layers which helps me keep them aligned.

Hi there!

Wondering if you would share your pattern, or if you sell it? I'm hoping to make something like this for my little one. Thanks!
