As always, the most important thing is that the recipient likes it (yay, I'm so happy). But I also really really enjoyed making it.
When the quilt top was ready I got this notion that hand quilting would really suit it, and I'm happy I stuck to it. There is something very relaxing in hand quilting.
For the back I chose a text that I knew my friend would laugh at and one that would bring back memories of our Swedish classes. And just to make it a bit more Swedish related (as the text is in Polish), the letters are based on the Sweden's official font.
I did plan the overall look, with the dark centre and white "petals" in the middle, and with dark "petals" on the edges, but I still wanted to keep it a bit random, so I didn't spend too much time on choosing fabric for each block.
The binding is mainly in solid greys, with a bit of denim blue and a few plaid pieces.
So this is my biggest finish from the 4Q FAL list. Hope you like it, too.
