Look What I Made: Summer Song Quilt

patchwork quilt
I’m not sure when I started this quilt, probably not long after I finished the first quilt I ever made. I thought it was about time it was added to the done pile. The quilt top fabric is Summer Song by My Mind’s Eye for Riley Blake. For the first quilt I made with this fabric I used the pink blossom fabric for the binding. This time I made binding from the same orange fabric I used for the backing. Summer Song is still my favourite fabric range of all time! I also used it to make a needle book for my Nanna last year. I have some left, not sure what to make with it. Suggestions?

Look What I Made: Pink and Grey Triangle Baby Quilt

I finished this quilt up last week, staying up way too late hand sewing the binding on. For some reason the binding is my favourite part of quilting. Besides choosing and buying fabrics, but that goes without saying doesn’t it? It’s a small quilt, and was made for two reasons: I love these colours together and I love triangle quilts. The placement of the blocks is random, I didn’t play with it too much. The fabrics are all from my stash, with coordinating binding and backing.
