On a roll

All rolled up

I just couldn't rest until it was finished.

I made the back using left over bits from the front and some solids I had in my stash.

The quilting is a new approach for me, thanks to inspiration from the fabulous Ashley of Film in the Fridge. She uses this sort of random line quilting to wonderful effect. Like on this quilt.

You can see the quilting much better on the back.

And for the binding, more scraps from the front. The scrappier the better, I say!!

I hope you're having a crafty Monday too.

And to answer the question from the other post: I would definitely love to learn how to make a quilt that didn't have to be perfect. X

Love the pieced backing with the bright colors -- very pretty! I just started doing pieced backs this month. They are so addicting that I did three large quilts with the pieced back.

It's fabulous! I especially love the grey and pieced boarders. They make it all just pop! As much as I totally hate sewing on boarders, I think I wold do it for a quilt like this!!! That was the perfect way to use a layer cake and charm pack - wow.
