My Sakura quilt is finished and ready to be entered into the Tula Pink SAL. I first posted about it here. I finally got home early in time for it to still be light enough to take photos.
Size- 47" x 60" lap quilt
Pattern- cherry pie from Tula Pink.
Fabric- I used a Matsuri fat quarter bundle and some coordinating solids from connecting threads.
Thread -Aurifil white for piecing and quilting (my first time using this thread - NOT disspointed)
Quilting- stipple FMQ by me on my home machine
Binding- machine stitched solid pink
Destination- For my Bubby's couch.
perfect size for a couch or a picnic for two
For the back I took the strips that were leftover after cutting the blocks for the front and pieced them down the center flanked by solids. Then I added in the remaining prints from my fat quarter bundle into color blocked rows.
It's a fun problem when you can't decide which side you like better.
Here's a close up of the back.
And as always, I will finish out with a photo of my quilt burrito.
This lap quilt is going to my Bubby. She loved the quilt I made for my mom, so I decided to surprise her with her very own quilt. I think this quilt will really brighten up her living room. The fabrics remind me of some of the old housecoats she used to wear (in a good way!) and of the myriads of Asian art and artifacts she has decorating her home.
