Arcadia Quilt Finished
I finally finished my latest quilt...not that there have been that many!
I bought the fabric as a Layer Cake (10" x 10") from Nerybeth Fabrics over a year ago. I found it hard to decide what to do with it and how to do it. I eventually took out all the fabrics with orange in them, and only used the brown, blue and yellows. The taupe background fabric is from my local fabric shop.
I cut each 10 inch piece into four 5 inch squares. and used half and half background and patterned. I used a flannelette sheet for the batting, so it is really only a summer weight quilt.
It measures 65" x 85" and fits a single bed(twin in America?) but I think it will go accross the end of a double or our own King (American queen?).
I stitched in the ditch on the main part, but did a bit of hand stitching at the ends, where I added a plain strip.
I love this line of Moda fabrics. I made my sister an apron with some a while ago too. Another thing I forgot to photograph! I love the colours in this quilt. The blue is one of my favourite colours and the yellow is really sharp and fresh.
Don't expect to see another quilt for a while though!
