Hi! I hope you've all been so busy enjoying your summer that you won't have noticed my absence here! There's just so much packed into a short season here that I'm okay with my sewing machine gathering dust for a month or two. But I did find a few minutes to hand sew the binding on this otherwise long finished quilt.
I have not been cheating on my Quilt the Book with Simply Retro challenge. No sirree. In fact I have my second quilt top completed already and have not started any other project in between, well except for a few small necessary ones, but they don't count:)
So as I said, this Donut Quilt was almost complete many moons ago, and now it's being used to snuggle in the mornings when the air is brisk. This one is staying at our house. Not sure why, but I think I just can't resist the charm of a quilt made of 'donuts'.
About the quilt, it's made from this pattern. It's a super fun quilt to make. The background fabric is a Moda Grunge, although don't ask me which exact color it is, because I simply can't remember. I used a crazy assortment of pinks for the donuts, and I realize that I don't even have a close up photo of my two favorite blocks! I will try to get that yet.
It is minimally quilted, just handquilting with pink perle cotton around the donut shapes. The backing is a combo of two prints, the gray polka dot and the pink feathers. The binding is a combo of two prints as well, a stripe and a Liberty floral. If you're curious about a specific fabric, feel free to ask in the comments and I will try to answer there as well so anyone interested can see.
p.s. I'm pretty sure that the Moda Grunge background is this one here. From the collection Little Black Dress 2.
