Bijoux

100_3583

This is probably the second easiest quilt I have ever made.* The patches are put together using a tube method and arranged in a stacked coin style. The fabric requirements are just 10 fat quarters and some background fabric. Easy peasy, no ?…Yes ! Why it took me almost a year from start to finish is a mystery.

The backing is all the same print (Exotic Bandana in Sahara) so I didn’t bother taking a shot of the back.

I took these pictures a couple of days ago during less than ideal light conditions. While they certainly aren’t the best pictures we are now experiencing some snowy,cold, cloudy, winter weather. Done is better than perfect 🙂

The fabric is Bijoux by Bari J for Art Gallery fabrics.

I had the longarm quilting done for me and am not particularly happy with it. There  seems to be a lot of puckering within the quilting. My Dad used to say “it’ll all come out in the wash”, hopefully that old saying will hold true once I’ve washed it.

I was lucky to find an Art Gallery fabric that is the exact shade of the darkest brown for the binding, I think it frames the quilt well. The finished quilt measures aprox. 68″ x 70″ and if you are interested in making one  you can see the tutorial here.

Hope 2016 is treating you well so far !

*This quilt here is the easiest/fastest I’ve ever made.

    Well, I hope it does ‘come out in the wash’, because it’s a really lovely quilt. Eye-catching but in a ‘can’t wait to use this’ sort of way.
