awhile back, when i first laid eyes on it, i bought a fat quarter bundle of wee wander fabric (by sarah jane studios) to make quilts for anna and hazel. i didn’t really have a plan, but i knew i wanted to make matching quilts in each of the colorways. i decided on a free pattern/tutorial for a giant hexie quilt by pieces by polly.
the pink is anna’s (she chose) and the aqua is hazel’s (she doesn’t care).
while i was working on them, i wasn’t in love with the pink. but anna LOVES it. so, i’m good with it. i found the coordinating solids on a site that matched them up for wee wander for me (after coming up short on a day long search in my local shops).
i super love the backs. i ordered extra yardage of the border print and used it along the bottoms. i had hoped for some ikea number fabric for the top, but it’s all sold out everywhere, so i used this circle flat sheet i scored in the as-is section of ikea awhile back. for $6. i got both backs from it, with some to spare!
i quilted an all over meander, because it’s my go to. and i bound in some of the feather fabric from the line. i bought the binding long before i knew what pattern i would be using and before i chose the background fabrics. in the end, i wished i had chosen a color that would pop more, but i didn’t want to wait for more fabric. or spend more money. so, the binding is a close match to the background. i’ll live, i suppose.
now, i am have three completed tops and backs to get together for a friend, and i’ll be through my pile of works in progress. (except for my feathers quilt, which is on the way farthest back backburner that ever existed).
