Yes, it is true, I am almost done with Hot Flash!! Although I may end up naming it something else. Now mind you my daughter's birthday is only 2 days away, so it most likely will be ready for Christmas and not her birthday. I don't think she will mind.
This weekend, I applied the pieced borders and really love the way it looks. I just need to add one more plain border. It will be a black with a white background.
These quarter square/half square triangle combo units were easy peasy using the Tucker Trimmer. They really turned out perfect. My daughter picked out the blue and teal fabrics without knowing what I was going to do with them. Well, I guess she knew that I would be making some kind of quilt.
I just love how the saturated color of the blues and teals "POP" against the black and white. What do you think?
A closer look at the combo units really show how nicely they work up.
I think that she will be pleased even though it isn't her Union Jack Flag quilt (that she also asked for). That will come next...
You can see that you can mix different kinds of fabric. I always do. I used a mix of batiks and regular quilting cotton prints in this quilt. Using batiks is always a pleasure, they press so nicely and are always saturated in color.
I just couldn't pass up putting the quilt on the bed to see how it would look. Albeit, it is isn't her bed.
Recap on what I used to create this quilt:
2. Black and white fabrics from my stash and shop.
3. Batiks from my stash and shop.
4. Tucker Trimmer.
So if you are interested in making one of these beauties, you can find everything you need in my shop!! Plus, the black and white fabrics are on sale for this week only for $7.75 per yard.
Hopefully next time you see this quilt it will be quilted and bound. I think I will do a fairly simple pieced backing too. Do you think I can have it all done by Christmas??
Until Next Time....
