Shabby Chic

I finished my Virtual Quilting Bee quilt yesterday. I L-O-V-E it!

Who knew that 12 blocks made by 12 different people could go together in a quilt so well. It's so very "Shabby Chic" and girly.
I used a 2" sashing and a whole bunch of little identically fussy cut setting squares. That, I tell you, was quite a job.

I'm so proud of myself. I added a label!
I love how the binding turned out. It's Stripey from Sandi Henderson's Farmers Market.

I also photographed each block individually. You can see them in the VQB pool on Flickr.

  20. Hi Anina

    I agree with everyone else - the quilt looks lovely! Can I ask about the quilting? Have you stipple quilted and then washed it to get that lovely, almost hand quilted effect. I really think the quilting makes it! Also love the border fabric!
