A Lovely Year of Finishes - February Finish

My primary goal for this month (post here) was to get all my moderinstabee blocks sewn together and to create a backing, as I don't have any pieces of fabric large enough to fit the front!


The Moderninstabee Blocks

The top came together really quickly. I added a sashing of 1.5", finished.

I had a couple of blocks that had an off-white background so I used them on the back with some scraps of aqua and grey that were left over.


Quilt backing

I even managed to get it basted last week! Now I just need to decide how I want to quilt it! This is my usual stumbling point!


Basted and ready for quilting.

So I achieved my goal for the month! But I am still hoping I might get to start the quilting before the month is out!

  4. Quilt top looks great. Quilting is always the hardest part. I would maybe quilt 1/4 inch on the seams following around each star. Repeating on the smaller stars in the block. You would create a secondary pattern into the sashing and could maybe do a few more lines between the blocks. That's what popped into my head when I saw your lay out. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.
