quilt update #4

here it is, the front of my quilt in one piece! it's so exciting to look at it all sewn together :)
i'm trying not to be too hard on myself about any mistakes in the seam alignment, but i guess you always spot your own mistakes. it was an absolute bugger to sew as it grew, goodness knows how i'm going to handle the next few stages!

i'm still no closer to choosing a backing fabric, it feels like such a huge challenge and i really don't want to get it wrong. any ideas would be most welcome! (at least i'm not in a rush to buy anything so i won't go making a rash decision).

also, i've been told already by a few people that this quilt suits me perfectly/is me in quilt form; such sweet compliments! <3


  1. Looks great Skye! Love the colours, all so calming :) xoxo

  2. Stunning! I think the yellow colour would make an awesome backing colour. I hope you find a fabric you like :)

    I want to make a quilt now!


    1. Or even the navy! Gorgeous! Want it! X

  3. Oh wow this is absolutely beautiful Skye! I love all the colours and patterns, you should be so proud! It makes me want to create a quilt but I don't think I'd stay motivated! As for backing fabric I can picture a small white polka dot print with a background colour of either blue, grey or yellow :) xxx

  4. I know I already said it but it looks amazing, you've done a great job!
    I love the colours/fabrics you've chosen, very seaside themed which suits you :) x

  5. Quilt is looking awesome!! You must be so chuffed:) x
