Wouldn’t you know it?

I finished the Echo framed quilt in enough time to get some photos in decent light!!

I have to admit I love it! It feels very modern and funky to me. Here are some close-ups of the details. I bound with a print from Innocent Crush.
Backed with a house print from Ikea.

Straight-line quilted with a mustard/gold thread.

Then, wouldn’t you know it…claimed by the teenager!! Darn, I felt certain this would be far too colourful for her tastes but apparently not. It now resides in her pit room!
I also finished the tree skirts today! Woohoo! This rather dodgy picture shows the tree skirt for my Savvy Seasons Swap partner.
I bound it with green and white twill ribbon which was marginally easier than with bias-binding. I cheated by sewing it on by machine. The binding is far from perfect but I hope my partner will appreciate how flipping difficult it was and forgive my inadequacy in that area πŸ˜‰
Then for contrast, here’s my finished tree skirt. I love how Carol’s pattern translates so beautifully regardless of the fabrics used!
Tomorrow I’d better crack on with some of the items from the Christmas makes list! Catch you soon x

    Wow! The Echo quilt is stunning – I love it even more than I did yesterday. In fact, I want one!!
    The tree skirts look cute but I only have eyes for the quilt πŸ™‚ You must be a lovely mum to let the daughter claim it, lol.
