Freedom blocks quilt finished


Freedom blocks quilt by Green Star Quilts 
It has taken rather longer than I expected to finish this quilt, life just keeps on getting in the way.... how do those quilters we all admire make a quilt every week? I wish I knew and I suspect they have very well trained and tidy families and are very, very organised! But at last here is the finished Freedom blocks quilt. I am so pleased with this quilt, it is soft to touch, drapes really well and the bright colours just pop out of the white sashings whilst the grey polka dot squares add another interest too.

Here are some close ups:

The bright colours blocks are quilted with a free motion spiral.

The straight line quilting along the white sashing gives a slightly 3D  effect.

The backing fabric is the same pale grey with a tiny white polka dot

Here are the measurements:

41 x 49 inches 
104 x 126 cm

This quilt would make a play mat, a bed cover for a first size bed for a toddler, a lap quilt or sofa throw and could also be used as a topper on a single bed. 

The quilt is for sale on my website, on the Buy now quilts page. Please contact me via the contact page if you would like more details.

Thanks for visiting, 
Kind regards,
