This is a lighter color type of quilt for me as I usually work with darker and colourful fabrics, but this sounded perfect for our FL house where the decor is on the lighter side.
During this time of year, the sunny days are numbered and it is often cloudy and rainy. The sun was shining that day, making it difficult for accurate photos and seems to enhance the quilting and the colors seem to disappear into the background.
The next picture shows part of the process of matching the print when piecing the backing together. Three lengths of fabric were used. Here, I am using pins but, basting glue can be use as well.
All that is left to do is the label.
