This afternoon it was fine and still and not too sunny so I grabbed a few finished items and works in progress and headed outside to take some photos.
After what seems forever, Simple Pleasures is finally finished.
I quilted a 1/4 inch each side of the block seams ...
and echo quilted the triangles in the border.
In case you hadn't guessed it's a Hatched and Patched design by Anni Downs. Her stitcheries are so distinctive.
For this quilt I used a range of fabrics by Heather Mulder Peterson called Cottage Charm.
Several years ago by local Spotlight had this range on it's shelves and I bought up big!
Here's a closer look at the quilting in the border ... simple but effective.
And to finish a shot of the backing. I'm not usually a fan of yellow but this buttery print jumped out shouting 'pick me' when I was auditioning fabric for the backing.
I'll be back soon with some of the other projects that got photographed today.
