And the back:
If you look at the stripey strip between the 3rd and 4th rows down from the top, you might notice that the stripes are different from all the others. That's deliberate! I didn't have enough of the original stripe to do the binding for the edge but I did have enough of another stripe so I used that stripe for one of the joining rows to (sort of) tie it all together. Here's the binding being sewn on to the top by machine:
Here it is waiting for me to pin it on to the back. Don't you love those singers? :oD
This is me sitting under the quilt yesterday evening hand sewing the binding on to the back.
I had to wait until today to get photos taken of the quilt in all its glory. Isn't it FAB? I love it! (Please take note of the sunshine - it didn't last long!!)
And this is the back.
I had decided, when I was doing my dummy run, that it would be way too complicated to try to get a good layout for the top and for the bottom at the same time, so I just didn't bother about how the back would turn out. I actually like that there are some yellows together, reds together and 4 darks in a row.
I've already sat under this quilt on the couch tonight and it's very, very cosy. I'm really pleased at how my LTP turned out. :o)
