Ahhhh -- a finished quilt. I shared this top in mid-November. I received the back and binding fabric in the mail last week and got it quilted and bound over the weekend. The fabric on the back is a coordinate of the Chocolat line that is available in 108" width. This was my first time using a wide fabric. Such joy, no piecing -- just baste and quilt. The binding is from the same line and has diagonal stripes of red and brown. When cut on the straight grain it looks like bias binding. This quilt could not have been any easier.

Lovely quilt, Libby! That Chocolat fabric is gorgeous and combine it with plaids and it's perfect IMHO. :D

that backing is delicious!! You made fast work of that and I love the plaids with the floral.

Nicely done!

It is just wonderful...and what pattern did you use. Simple and very wonderful! That Chocolat group was just awesome!

What a beautiful quilt! Love that rich backing fabric. And the striped binding, too!

Easy quilt but very beautiful. The colours is sooooo nice. When I started to quilt many years ago, I head that the backing didn't matter. Use some old fabric .....
But the backing does matter quite a bit. Have you noticed even when a quilt hangs on the wall we flip it up to see the backing LOL

I really liked the top when you showed it in November and I like the quilt even better! Floral and plaids is such a great combination.

Hi Libby!
I think I figured out the commenting thing on Beta! It's worked well this morning, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed on yours..
Love the colors you chose for these quilts. Also wanted to say thanks for your sweet comments about Grandpa!

Very Very pretty. Simple, but not simple looking!! I bought wide fabric for my big Stars quilt but have yet to get it basted. I am looking forward to not having to piece the backing too!! You are much quicker than I am at getting things done!!

very nice quilt. You certainly finished it quickly.

Chris said...

Came across your blog and I love it. Your quilting style is very similar to mine. I'll be checking back!

Great quilt! I really like the Chocolat fabric. Your binding fabric is the backing fabric of a quilt that I'm in the midst of making. I just love it.
