Today it's all about Hugs & Kisses
I used Modern Workshop by Liesl Gibson for Moda for the cover quilt. Since fabric on the bolt isn't available yet I used City Weekend for the backing and the binding. The teal color was a perfect match.
"Using the strips as my guide, I quilted a Plume Feather that traveled up the quilt. In the white background, I quilted smaller Plume Feathers to add even more texture."
I wanted to get a shot of the back to show you how I pieced it. I'm not sure when I started doing my quilt backs like this... but I do it almost all of the time now. Instead of using one fabric for the back I use a few and create a pieced backing with my label pieced into a strip. Soon I'll show you how I come up with all of the measurements so that you can do this too if you want.
If you are just joining us... you can see the covers of all of my new patterns here.
