I kept the design quite simple - HST units, pairing vintage with solid white. The blocks consist of 4 matching HSTs to unify the otherwise incoherent mix of colour and pattern. The blocks were set on-point and I used Kona Green Tea for the setting triangles. The green feels right at home with the vintage prints, yet is also fresh.
I found a vintage sheet for the backing, and quilted using straight lines to complete the look. For such a simple quilting design, there really was a ridiculous number of treads to bury (which is largely the reason why it took me so unbelievably long to complete what really is a simple quilt!) The binding is a vintage stripe/cross-hatch/polka-dot print...not the most attractive fabric on it's own, but works quite nicely as a binding!
My favourite thing about this quilt is the fun assortment of prints and the unconventional colour combos! Don't you think this looks like the perfect picnic quilt? Once the weather gets a little warmer I'll have to take it out and test that theory!
This is my third finish from my Quarter 1 list of goals for the Finish Along.
