Phew! After some concentrated sewing effort (aided by a long weekend), I finished my scrappy trip along quilt top. My particular version has finished at 64" square - a nice throw size, and easy to handle for quilting.
The bright colours and the design made me think of a piñata - so La Piñata she is. To be fair, given that this quilt contains 1,024 2" finished squares, it was pretty painless.
I never thought I would use metallic looking fabric in a quilt, but after I spied the Mirror Ball Dots from Michael Miller here, I had to have them. I was a little nervous about ironing this fabric, but after I did a small test piece, I ironed in my usual way (hot and lots of steam) with no ill effect. So, if you like the look but were holding off because of worries about how the fabric would behave - go for it!
Is it wrong that I kind of like the back more than the front?
How is your scrappy trip along quilt going (almost everyone in the quilt blogging world seems to have drunk this particular kool-aid)?
