I used 9 different fabrics in the binding for this quilt. I was able to match up greens and blues to the areas in those colors. This one ended up 59″ x 76.5″ so it is a nice size couch quilt.
The inspiration for this quilt was “Crossroads” in “Colorful Quilts” by Amy Walsh and Janine Burke from Blue Underground Studios. I have to admit though that I didn’t follow the cutting directions in the book. I just sliced through the squares randomly.
I took it off the design wall and them remembered I hadn’t shown the backing and I’m going to try to remember that for all of my quilts this year. I hung it back up, not quite as straight but it does show the backing fabric which I got on sale.
