I finally had some time to finish up this beauty. Too often I am lured into making bigger quilts, and by the end of the making...I need a rest. This quilt was just right! I made the lap version of Rene's Peace pattern. I used two charm packs of Moda batiks with a little more purple thrown in for fun. The background is a Connecting Threads solid, Silver Lining. I really like them, the price is great ($4.96/yd.) , and they feel lovely. Bonus, many of the colors have coordinating thread that is so inexpensive, and great as well.
The backing is some yardage that I got several years ago while on vacation. It is a textured silvery purple. I finished up the quilt with a little straight-line quilting which makes for a drape-y, cuddly, quilt. The binding is simply a batik in a color that stands out from the colors in the top.
This was such a fun quilt to make.
Now I am on to my scrappy trip quilt, and halfway done piecing the blocks together. I have everything I need to finish this quilt except the batting. No idea when I will have time to go get some, but in the meantime, I am loving the process.
