Up Down Quilt

I asked Eleanor if she would kindly pose with my new quilt, and while she agreed, 
it was with some reluctance... 

she doesn't trust that little vintage kitty chalk head staring down at her!

I made this improv wall hanging using those lovely Cirrus Solids from Cloud9 Fabrics, 
(shown at the bottom of my last post). Very happy with how this turned out. 
Love the colors and I gotta say... 
this fabric is soooo soft!

I choose to finish it with a "faced" finish instead of a traditional binding. 
If you have never tried this technique, (or have had trouble following facing instructions) I have a very easy tutorial on my Tutorials page, (listed above) or you can go directly to it, here.


PS. Well aware at how infrequently my posts have been lately... I love this blog, but posting is a very time consuming activity, and I really only want to post when I feel like I have something interesting to share or something important  to say. However, remember, I can always be found over on Instagram, where I usually post something everyday. It's the "behind the scenes" stuff... works in progress, design ideas or a local photo of something that inspires me or makes me happy!

Hope to see you over there as well as here!

Have a super weekend everyone!
