So, I finally finished my Just a Little Light Quilt!!
This is one I started a ways back. I really enjoyed working with these Lotta Jansdotter Bella prints. The fabric is so delicously soft and the pattern is just lovely. I used Kona Ash for the negative space/background color; I know it’s not a huge change from my mostly typical white background, but it’s a start!
After so many hours of tedious pebble quilting though, I simply couldn’t look at it for anymore in order to get the binding on. So it sat while I gathered my inspiration to finish it.
Finally I got around to it this weekend. I’m so happy to have it done. I can happily scratch pebble quilting off my list of must try quilting techniques. After doing it on such a big open space, I’m happy with the results but in hindsight,– my takeaway on pebble quilting- –only in small doses!!! It seemed to make sense at the time as I loved the pebble like quality of the circles in the Bella prints. I loved the idea of echoing that in the quilting.
I really enjoyed peiceing together my leftovers for the back, as you can, uh ahhemm, see. Yes, I must admit, I had a hard time knowing when to say when here!!
This little guy finished up at about 45×45 and is destined to be a baby quilt somewhere, someday!!
