WIP: The last minute finished quilt

I finished this small quilt -I call it a stroller quilt/blanket- on our way to Thessaloniki, while my husband was driving…Hand binding a small quilt can be a very easy “on the road” project.

First of all I have to credit my inspiration, that was NanaCompany and her wonderful quilting, and the book “Warman’s Vintage Quilts“, which includes a very similar doll quilt.

I used on the top the line “30’s Playtime” by Chloe’s Closet from Moda fabrics and a dark brown cotton solid, and for the backing Red flower Floursack from Windham fabrics. The quilt measures approximately [63,5 cm x 83,8cm] 25” Χ 33” inches, and it was machine quilted, with a few hand-quilted details, and hand-binded.

I decided to keep this space of our living room for photographing my smaller quilts. I think it looks really cool.

Now on this week’s statistics. I have a lot to do, and so little time….

Dresden quilt:

I have been hand quilting a lot on the christmas holidays but still there is a lot left to go. It is going on great though.
Checkers quilt:
I will definetely try to finish the top this week, and finally show you something…

Just today I received the backing fabric, so I will have to experiment with some machine quilting this week.

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.

That is sweet.  I never thought to put black with 30s prints but I will have to bear it in mind.
