Do you ever make the same quilt more than once? I know there are so many great quilt ideas out there. And some people claim that they enjoy a new challenge, so they would never consider making the same quilt more than once. I used to be one of those quilters.
This is the Giraffe Family quilt made using Cotton Supreme Solids by RJR Fabrics.
The last time I made this quilt, I chose to make it using a green background. Please click here to read that post, where I explained the mistake I made. Of course, I did not even realize I had made a mistake until uploading the photos for the post and sharing this photo mosaic of all the Fox & Friends quilts together. One of these things doesn't look like the others.....
Can you see that? It's some more wavy line quilting. I really enjoyed quilting this quilt. I was really getting in the groove with those curvy lines! The quilting was done using Light Grey Omni from Superior Threads, on top and plain white Gutermann thread in the bobbin for the back.
And here you can see the quilting from the back. This backing print is from the Urban Artifacts collection, which you can view here, and I am simply in LOVE with this print! The colours, the dots, the flowers and the text. It is just such a fun print!
Normally, I attach a binding first to the back of a quilt and then topstitch from the front to finish. But wanting to use a matched binding, this time I attached to the binding to the front. To finish, I topstitched along the "ditch" to catch the binding that had been folded around to the back. I used threads to match the binding both on top and in the bobbin.
Here is a close up of how the binding matches the piecing in the top. Want to know how I did it? Click here to check out my binding tutorials for more information.
