WIP: The last minute finished quilt

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.

 The quilt is listed for sale in my Etsy Shop:

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.
