Bamboo Garden

This quilt was a test to see if I could hide the imperfections from a charm pack that was not perfectly cut.  I really can’t complain, as the charm pack was ‘free’ with purchase at my local fabric store.  Since I loved the fabric line with the mix of bamboo and flowers, I was able to stagger my sashing to create a fun bamboo garden quilt.  With a pieced backing and detailed quilting of leaves and flowers, one may not even notice the inconsistent sizes of each square .  Shhh — don’t tell!


My First Pieced Backing

After seeing so many pieced backings at the Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by Amy’s Creative Side, I decided to take the plunge and try my first pieced backing.  It worked out well, as I was able to add a label surrounded by scrap fabric without having to buy additional fabric.

Here is my pieced back, along with a quilt top that I completed today!
