Friday Finish: 3DTP Quilt
I just put the final stitches in the binding on my "3DTP quilt. It was made for Sew Sweetness' Tula Pink Sew Along, and was a great excuse to elevate my Tula Pink fabric from stash hoard to an actual quilt! I used all fat quarters on the front of this quilt, as well as some grey Free Spirit solid and Kona Solid on the top. On the back is more Free Spirit solids and some batiks that I had in my stash. I couldn't resist putting some pink in there somewhere ;-).
The pattern is one that I made up, but I have seen similar quilts on-line. The block is a very simple one, and then I added generous sashing and borders. It's 68 by 82 inches. I've been itching to make a shadow, or 3D quilt for ages, and this sew along was the perfect excuse!
I quilted it myself in my home machine, and just let the fabric do the talking. It seriously took my much longer to quilt this beauty than it took me to piece it all together. I had enough of the purple batik to make the sashing with only a dozen or so inches to spare! It's now off to the washer to take a bath, and then will keep us warm in the months to come!
