There are actually some photos of two blocks from this quilt in my sidebar but I have only just officially finished it, with binding.....I loathe binding
It came from this publication
And is a Sarah Fielke design...I love her work in case you didn't know, it's a really great exercise in colour placement and practising your point matching as all the pieces are cut individually, not strip pieced and then cut on a 45 or 60 degree angle like most ' hexagon type' stars.
So a block at a time is really quite fun if you cut a whole lot of scraps or strips in one go and then play around with it
Binding is a DS print in black and orange, perfect against the Kaffe Fassett Roman Glass print
The border down each side I designed myself but I should've oversized the outer triangles to allow for bias stretch and being quilted by the longarmer ...it was a mission to bind without losing any points so some allowances are a very scant 1/4" with a few back and forth stitiches
If you've been here before you know I have a love for chenille bedspreads as backing but it's not often they still have an original tag, this one did and I laughed at the colour Jaffa?!!.... as it really is a Jaffa colour (red, round crispy coated lolly with chocolate inside that tastes like orange)
