The quilt front was easy to sew with a lot of chain piecing.
A little closer look at the quilting. I like how the white pops up between the blocks - a lovely geometric design. This souvenir block is a keeper.
For once I had a larger piece of fabric that nearly covered the whole back, only supplemented with some leftover purple and grey-blue used in the front. The vertical quilting hardly shows on the back due to the linear pattern of the fabric. Funny how camouflaged the stitching became.
My subway quilt, that I am now using on the sofa and has cotton batting, is really not that warm. Therefore I tried out white synthetic fleece, which was a third of the price. It was not that hard to quilt with and it is cozier. I have heard of wool, but that is not available to me at present.
Of course all my photo sessions attract a crowd of curious little ones who try to grab the camera, climb on the chair I am perched on or roll around on the quilt. All in the name of attention-seeking. It will be great to have my own sewing room soon.
Have an exhilarating day!
