I'm really in love with this one. I love all the scrappy color.
The back just makes me happy. I've wanted to try this for a while. It's just one giant wonky log cabin. I'm not including instructions for the back in my pattern because it's so simple. Just keep adding borders until it's big enough. It did get pretty cumbersome to work with as it grew bigger. I love the range of colors as I worked through the color wheel for each border row. The only regret I have is beginning with red. I wish I had ended with red as my outer border rather than the orange red. All the borders past yellow are longer than WOF. Some of them I pieced a little strip of a different fabric, but some I carefully matched prints so the seam wouldn't be noticeable. I really love how it turned out.
I included two layers of batting on this quilt to make it nice and heavy. I've heard of others doing that and thought it would be a great idea. My machine, on the other hand, did not think it was a great idea. I had lots of skipped stitches on this one. I changed needles and thread several times, but nothing worked. I finally resorted to quilting very slowly to get it finished. I was so relieved when it was all done. I probably won't be using two layers of batting again anytime soon. I do love the weight though. It's the perfect size and weight to wrap up in.
Pattern coming soon!
