This is my favoritest quilt to date. I'm making a snowball queen-size "Marie" quilt using Tula Pink's Parisville line, and each of those blocks made a bunch of leftover HST units that were begging to be made into a throw. I originally sewed up Le Mille for the Tula sew-along at Sew Sweetness last year, and I finally finished the binding this week.
The quilting is mostly straight lines in the solid squares, but I did FMQ a flowery kind of something in the center bit. I used Aurifil thread for the white portions and Sulky thread in the jade portions. The Sulky thread was a lot heavier, but Agatha seemed to take to either thread without problem.
The border is scrappy and uses even more scraps from my bed quilt. I still have a huge stack of scraps from that project, but I'm certainly not complaining since I love Parisville something fierce! Binding is the jade solid, which is Bella Solids in Jade. The white is Kona Snow, I believe.
This quilt was super fun to make--even if I hated trimming all of those crazy HSTs--and I'm so thankful to have it done for snuggling!
And it's not as exciting, but I also finished a scalloped bunting from this tutorial from sew mama sew.
I had plenty of leftovers from this ikea text print I used for backing in Autumn's quilt and Boo's quilt, and they worked perfectly with this bunting. It's hanging in my kitchen, making me a very happy girl.
I'm linking up today with TGIFF at Sew, Love, Live and Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
