Quilt Top and Back Done

I thought I pinned the strips in the correct order before I started sewing. I must have flipped one of the strips. Too late to change it now. I also added in the red borders and mitered the corners. I had to look up some videos on YouTube to do the mitered corners as I could not remember how. It went well.

This is the back of the quilt. I had to go to the shop to get more fabrics for the back. I had a 'fun' time cutting the fabric along its length. Now to sandwich the cotton batting in between and do some quilting before the binding.

While I was trying to get the whole quilt top (72 x 72 inches) into my camera frame, I did not notice Tsuru sneaking onto the quilt. The other day when I was assembling the strips, Umi was skating across the floor and messing up the strips. She had to be told off twice before she stopped.


  1. Your quilt is just gorgeous! I love the contrasting colours!
    I approve of Tsuru sneaking onto the quilt since it makes it easy to see that size of it ;)

  2. All the stripes alternate correctly, from what I can see. Maybe you wanted the color arrangement to be different. Kitties think the world is theirs! Lovely quilt!

  3. I love it! I'm getting ready for my next quilt. All I need is a little bit of time... make that a lot of time!

  4. I love the red border - nice choice!

  5. A very nice quilt. I like the colours You chose. And the kitty is veeery decorative.

  6. Lovely quilt, I think Umi has decieded where she wants to be, her new blanket in her mind!!!
