I wrapped up my last finish for my Lovely Finishes - February last night and I couldn't wait to blog about it! I've been giving sneak peaks on IG for a week or so now. My Simply Color postage stamp quilt in its entirety.. Sorry for the nighttime shots I was SO excited I couldn't wait for good lighting to take a better shot..
I think I like the backing on this even more than the front.. I saw Elizabeth's quilt back in December and knew I'd do something similar, its part of the reason I made this quilt. Then, I decided I needed to make sure I did some quilting that would really pop on a solid backing..
I went with the "orange peel" which is a bit wonky in places, but all in all, i'm super pleased with how it turned out... best part, I used my walking foot for it!! (I had a mishap with my fmq'ing foot a week ago, that ended with a needle through the plastic guard... how, no idea.)
I pulled a gray from the Life in the Jungle line to bind it with, I wanted something simple that it wouldn't take away from the quilt, but nothing too boring.
My plan was to list this quilt in my etsy shop.... butttttttt, i've changed my mind, it's mine! haha
