Back in March I shared a quick way to use up a layer cake with very little waste. Well the quilt is finished and I have to say it is my most favourite quilt I've made. The whole thing from start to finish was a joy to sew, stitch and quilt.
I think part of the reason it was so lovely to work with is in part because of the gorgeous fabrics, but also that I used Hobbs 80/20 fusible wadding…it makes the basting process painless and held the layers together perfectly for mindless machine quilting.
On the backing I added something extra. This was my DH’s idea as he thought the quilt would suit the caravan perfectly. So I have appliqued a caravan and car and stitched “we’re all going on a summer holiday” in variegated Perle cotton.
Until next time...♥
