A finish: Washi Tape Quilt

Ooh that was quite a big pause in posts for me! I have been doing quite a bit, and have a finish to post up today, albeit not one from my finish along list…. Still got to finish the things that pay the bills first, right?

So here is my Washi Tape quilt…

I forgot to photograph the back, but it’s not that exciting, it’s just a large brown floral that I got from the fabric guild.

Size – 40″ x 50″
Number of blocks – 20x  10″
Time to piece – 4 hours
Time to quilt – 2 hours
Fabric –  Kona School Bus, Klona White, Zen Chic Barcelona F8 bundle with a lot left over!
Backing Fabric – Brown and orange large print floral (no details in selvedge)
Binding Fabric – Same as backing fabric, using facings technique.
Threads – White Aurifil throughout.
Batting – 80/20 Soft and Elegant.
Quilting- Matchstick quilting along vertical and horizontal features. 8″ between the clusters, but that’s OK because Soft and Elegant can go up to 10″ apart.

It’s a nice easy make, just finishing up the instructions and I’m sending it off for publishing. Next job is to finish quilting the Bowie quilt- the challenge will be seeing if I actually finish it up this week in order to have at least one finish along finish this quarter.

Don’t know if you can tell, but I got myself that new camera (The Fuji HS50), I’ve been having fun testing it out, the dynamic range “EXR” facility is wonderful, I keep it on all the time. There’s very little noise in the darker pictures and the review screen (and most importantly the auto focus) is pin sharp. I’m very pleased with it!


I’m going to eat that flower….


Onto secret project number 2…
