hand printed textiles in my quilt

I have been hoarding small cuts of my favourite hand prints to make a simple quilt for myself

I have selected a palette of grey blue  teal  white & cream

my favourites

and cut 10 & 1/2 inch squares 

some squares needed  cobbling together from smaller scraps

mostly linen cotton blends but some quilters cotton added to the mix

I have used prints by 

a Finnish print from Japan

echo by Lotta Jansdotter

& a Japanese linen solid

I'm now looking for a backing fabric worthy of so much independent talent

edit : I have splurged on some nani iro double gauze dots for the back 

can't wait for it to arrive :)

 The wonky star baby girl quilt is ready for collection 

quilted in a cotton-ball puffy pattern

Happy Sundays
