the whole project was a lot of fun, i like the false hexagons very much, and this retro fabric is just perfect for them.
it turned out very nice: the binding in bright red gives the retro colors from Modas Hello Betty some funky, modern touch.
the quilting on the sides/borders went ok, i "made" some darts, but could hide them under the binding, lucky me!
the batting is 100%cotton, unwashed and because the Betty (Moda precut) fabric was unwashed, too, i actually had hoped for some major shrinking - but not really much happend as far as i can see. too bad.
but maybe my exessive steam-ironing the top and back did that trick?! If anybody has a suggestion to that: please let me know!!
all in all my second quilt is not perfect, either, but technically really a bit better than my first one, which is great - and a relief.
there are still lots of things to work on, especially the basting = putting together the quilt-sandwich. this is really a dreadful job to do. I hurry through it just to get it done while i really should take more care here. it probably would help a lot at the actual quilting part.
so what quilt will be next? A modern one? A Moda Arcadia one?
probably the Value Quilt i signed up for - more info about this quilt-along coming soon..
