Wind that clock forward 3 years, and I found my scrappy version of this quilt sitting in the bottom of a scrap tub. I had completely forgotten about it. At the time, I remember thinking that it was a little too small and I'd like to make more blocks to finish it... another day.
Honestly, it's never going to happen. I've added a black and white spot border with a few solid squares thrown in (I didn't have quite enough border fabric).
I quilted it in a meandering free motion design using my favourite light grey 50wt Aurifil cotton - #6726.
I adore this backing fabric. I've had it on my shelf for the longest time. I bound the quilt in bright yellow over the course of a couple of evenings watching "Outlander" on Netflix.
I'm happy to report that's now finished! Yaaaaay! My little helpers held it up - on their tippy toes, so I just know it'll be a great size for snuggling on the couch this coming winter.
Did you join in the trip along, back "in the day"? Did you make a scrappy version, or were you controlled with your fabrics and colours?
