300th Post! Oh, And A Quilt

300 posts. Geez, I talk a lot. I wanted to do a giveaway but it's not ready yet because *insert excuse here*. So I'll probably celebrate my 304th post with a giveaway or something... there's also only one of those too, right? Ahem.


Anyway, I finished a quilt a couple days ago and finally got it washed and dried. I used Moda Recess fabric for it... I'm truly in love with anything Sandy Klop designs. Honestly.

I did a sort of checkerboard pattern and initially I did think there was much too much white, but regardless, I like it. You can see the individual squares so much better, which I like.

I was about to stipple it and decided to just do straight, diagonal lines.

The back's a yellow dot fabric with faint outlines of blocks within the pattern. I thought that was cute, seeing as the front's all little squares.

I used fabric from Moda Wee Play for the binding. I'm so addicted to American Jane.

The quilt ended up measuring 39" by 47" and is currently available at the store. SOLD!

Beautiful! And congratulations on 300 posts!

I just became a follower of your blog because I stumbled across your Hello Betty hourglass quilt on Flickr while looking for pictures of the entire Hello Betty line. I also quilt (although not nearly as much as you) and I'm really liking what I see so far.

I hope you're having a great day!
